Palin and Polar Bears.....

This is your potential V.P. my American friends, the dishonorable Sarah Palin. Now tell me, how could you trust somebody so deep in Big Oil's pocket she's licking their balls.

Here's an example of her wisdom regarding global warming and its effect, and below is some proof refuting it:
"The State of Alaska will sue to challenge the recent listing of polar bears as a threatened species, Gov. Sarah Palin said Wednesday.

She and other Alaska elected officials fear a listing will cripple oil and gas development in prime polar bear habitat off the state's northern and northwestern coasts.

Palin argued there is not enough evidence to support a listing. Polar bears are well-managed and their population has dramatically increased over 30 years as a result of conservation, she said.

Climate models that predict continued loss of sea ice, the main habitat of polar bears, during summers are unreliable, Palin said.

The announcement drew a strong response from the primary author of the listing petition.

"She's either grossly misinformed or intentionally misleading, and both are unbecoming," said Kassie Siegel of the Center for Biological Diversity. "Alaska deserves better."

Siegel said it was unconscionable for Palin to ignore overwhelming evidence of global warming's threat to sea ice, the polar bear's habitat.

"Even the Bush administration can't deny the reality of global warming," she said. "The governor is aligning herself and the state of Alaska with the most discredited, fringe, extreme viewpoints by denying this.""

Read the rest of this story.

"The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is home to arctic foxes and caribou. It's the most important onshore denning habitat for America's vanishing polar bears. And, each year, millions of birds from all across the country make their way to this special place.

Yet, for all its unique beauty, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge remains under assault. Year after year, Big Oil's high-priced lobbyists push legislation to industrialize this national treasure. Isn't it time that this special place got the lasting protection it deserves?

The oil industry and its allies have launched a new attack on the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the danger is greater than ever."

"Increasing levels of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels - oil, coal and gas - are causing global warming. As a result, annual sea ice in the Arctic is melting earlier in the spring and forming later in the autumn. Research funded by WWF has found that this leaves many polar bears with less time on the sea ice to hunt for food and build up their fat stores, and increased time on land where they must fast. As their icy habitat disappears, the survival of the polar bear is at risk."

This one's just for you Sarah, you stunned twat:
