Apparently Governor Sarah Palin believes the "Change We Need" is climate change. Up until just a few weeks ago she was insistent that climate change was not caused by man. Suddenly she believes than "man" may be the cause, but doesn't want to argue about the causes. She just wants to make nonsensical blather that provides a glimpse of her cluelessness when it comes to environmental issues. I suppose it's hard to suggest moving away from fossil fuels and promoting alternative, renewable resources when you're addicted to oil. And if you admit burning fossil fuels causes climate change.....
The following is an excerpt taken directly from the transcript of the Vice-Presidential debates. I have changed nothing
IFILL: Governor, I'm happy to talk to you in this next section about energy issues. Let's talk about climate change. What is true and what is false about what we have heard, read, discussed, debated about the causes of climate change?
PALIN: Yes. Well, as the nation's only Arctic state and being the governor of that state, Alaska feels and sees impacts of climate change more so than any other state. And we know that it's real.
I'm not one to attribute every man -- activity of man to the changes in the climate. There is something to be said also for man's activities, but also for the cyclical temperature changes on our planet.
But there are real changes going on in our climate. And I don't want to argue about the causes. What I want to argue about is, how are we going to get there to positively affect the impacts?
We have got to clean up this planet. We have got to encourage other nations also to come along with us with the impacts of climate change, what we can do about that."
Does Palin actually makes sense to anyone? She sounds like Miss Teen South Carolina.
BIDEN: Well, I think it is manmade. I think it's clearly manmade. And, look, this probably explains the biggest fundamental difference between John McCain and Barack Obama and Sarah Palin and Joe Biden -- Gov. Palin and Joe Biden.
If you don't understand what the cause is, it's virtually impossible to come up with a solution.
Heck Joe - I'm glad you heard me screaming at the gosh darn TV. You took a few of the words right out of my head.
