"The federal government should be rewarding companies for finding oil or for coming up with new idea's to replace oil.

We are not the country that congress see's. We are a country that solves problems, we are not a country that creates them. If we continue down this path it will not be republicans versus democrats or capitalists against environmentalists, it will be the people against the government. They've got to wake up. We the people have got to wake them up. Speak UP!"

Sarah Palin

We have the resources in Alaska and they are ready to be tapped. The federal government and the extreme environmentalists are not allowing us.

We are so rich with millions and millions of barrels of oil still sitting under ground. Trillions and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas. A clean stable supply that is not allowed to be tapped."

Aside from her obvious vice of religion, this woman has all the makings of a splendid vice president. Don't you think?

Excellent choice...

...for VP. I hoped he would pick her ever since I heard of her fight to allow drilling in Alaska.

Funny enough, all the speculations about potential running mates for McCain that I read in the UK newspapers never mentioned her. Shows you how much they know! Next they'll be telling us the man-made global warming is real!

 He may be a crabby old fart, but he sure ain't a dumbass. This latest move was very smart, grabbing the growing number of AGW dissenters with one fowl swoop.

Palin Not Convinced on Global Warming

By Matthew Mosk and Juliet Eilperin

Some scientists believe Alaska will be among the first to feel the
impact of global warming, but Sarah Palin told voters there she wasn't
sure climate change wasn't simply part of a natural warming cycle.

"I will not pretend to have all the answers," Palin said about
global warming, according to the Anchorage Daily News. Her spokesman
clarified at the time that "she's not totally convinced one way or the
other. Science will tell us . . . She thinks the jury's still out."

Palin shared her views in the run-up to the 2006 governor's race, at
an Alaska Federation of Natives convention, where delegates passed a
resolution calling for a mandatory reduction in pollution affecting the
atmosphere.

Answering a question from the Daily News, Palin cautioned against "overreaction."

Those were among the comments that brought condemnation today from
Greenpeace to her selection as Sen. John McCain's running mate on the
Republican ticket. The environmental group's Alaska Global Warming
Campaigner, Melanie Duchin, described Palin as "one of the most
anti-environment records of any governor in the United States."

"She
has supported oil drilling in some of the most ecologically sensitive
areas in Alaska, even when it meant sacrificing polar bears, beluga
whales, and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge," Duchin's statement
said.

"Despite her advocacy for expanded oil and gas drilling, Palin has
done almost nothing to promote the clean energy sources that can help
solve global warming, which is already having major negative
consequences in her state," Duchin said.

In an interview released by Newsmax magazine today, Palin said that
while she recognized her state would be affected by climate change,
that didn't mean humans are responsible.

"A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other
state, because of our location," she said. "I'm not one though who
would attribute it to being man-made."

Palin's comments stand in sharp contrast to those of McCain, who
says at every campaign stop that he believes human activity is driving
global warming,

 

I admit that reason is a small and feeble flame, a flickering torch by stumblers carried in the starless night, -- blown and flared by passion's storm, -- and yet, it is the only light. Extinguish that, and nought remains.- - Robert Green Ingersoll
