    Red face Sarah Palin thinks global warming is a myth and HATES POLAR BEARS OMG

    Earlier this morning, before I left Denver, I wrote a post about oil companies and their cronies fighting the new rules designed to protect polar bears. Little did I know when I was writing the post that one of those cronies would be picked as McCain's v.p. Yes, guess who else wants no protections for the polar bears? Sarah Palin:


    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."



    Another global warming denier. Great. Sarah Palin is grossly misinformed. Maybe she should spend some time with the biologists who've been monitoring the polar bears lately. A report on this very subject came out this week:


    Government scientists reported seeing at least nine polar bears swimming in open water over a six-hour period on August 16, including one more than 50 miles offshore, World Wildlife Fund officials said.

    That represents a huge increase over previous sightings, said Margaret Williams of the fund's Alaska office. A total of 12 polar bears were spotted in open water between 1987 and 2003, Williams said in a telephone interview.

    In 2004, she said, four drowned bears were observed.

    "Unfortunately it's what we might expect to see if bears are forced to swim longer distances," Williams said. "The Arctic is gigantic. When you have nine bears sighted in one transect (route) ... one can assume that there are likely a lot more bears swimming in open water."



    Sounds like Sarah Palin thinks the polar bears should just die.

    OMG I knew the liberal press (and Grimm) would have a field day with her as soon as I heard she had a "pageant past!"

    Grim, I'm stealing this and putting it in the animals thread...mkay? It's really important but I fear it's getting buried here.

    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.
    All she has to do is watch either the National Geographic channel, Animal
    Planet or The Discovery Channel. There's so little ice left, that polar bears
    have to swim hundreds of miles before they get "ground" under their feet.
    I've seen the most shocking footage of a female polar bear who was all
    skin and bones BECAUSE of the insane distances she had to swim, looking
    for food. That bear did not choose to die because of exercise and not
    eating, like an anorexic! It was forced to literally go the distance to find
    food. And it isn't the only one.
    Crazy, ignorant bitch!

    Oh. this is really really sad. I didn't even know this was happening. I'll have to read up on this. Thanks for posting about it.

    Man, what an ignorant lady she is.

    It was certainly the most shocking thing I have seen this year.
    As long as the bear was in the water, she seemed okay. It wasn't
    until after a multi mile long swim she climbed up on some ice that
    you could see the skin hanging from her bones. It was like a person
    in a way too big bear suit Especially around the "knee" area,
    because it looked so human, could you tell how desperately under
    weight she was. The narrator said something about her being
    several HUNDRED pounds under weight!!!!

    She's disgusting.

    The polar bears are losing their habitat due to global warming and all this woman is concerned about is oil companies being able to drill for more oil? More drilling is not the answer - energy efficiency (why are CAFE standards in the US so far below those of Europe and Japan? Even the recently passed increase doesn't go far enough, imo) and alternative energy sources are.

    Humans are seriously fucking up this planet because of short-term thinking and greed.
