Palin likens global warming studies to 'snake oil'

Feb 9, 2010 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Sacramento Bee Newspaper

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called studies supporting global climate change a "bunch of snake oil science" Monday during a rare appearance in California, a state that has been at the forefront of environmental regulations.

In order to validate her own claim, I would be interested in having her identify any study that she has personally read which refutes any other reputable research supporting the claim of climate change. I get it that she disagrees with policies based on the premise of climate change, but that's different from having supportive evidence that the climate change evidence is invalid.

ROFLMHO!

In order to validate her I would like to see studies by her dissecting snails and grubs which refutes the biological evidence of incalculable suffering caused by warming brought on by Grandma driving her Chevy.

Otherwise I will just have to reject Sarah on the basis that she is one hot babe, Mother, politician and otherwise just one heck of an attractive desirable woman that I can't have.

Until then I will stick to the consensus that say we are all going to fry unless we give all power and all money to the political left. Then and only then will the warming fairies smile on our sacrifice to the gods and spare us this politically correct horrible death.

I'm sorry, Sarah is just another hot babe that I'd love to get a hold of. Ooops I mean has no clue.

ROFLMHO!

But that's the problem: Palin doesn't read.

Sadly, that makes her a heroine for the 1/3 of Americans who are functionally illiterate. As Pulitzer-prize winning author Chris Hedges says in EMPIRE OF ILLUSION: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle," these are people who eat at fast-food restuarants "because they can order from pictures rather than from a menu."

Or, as Larry McMurtry says, "don't read anything they can't buy at the bait shop."

Don't ya just love our tolerant and inclusive lefties. ROFLMHO!

Just like those wearing white hoods and robes our lefties are very tolerant and inclusive - as long as you are wearing a white hood and robe.

If you are not a flaming lefty then the tolerant and inclusive ones will do everything they can to destroy you.

JRS, you are obliviously attempting to project your own qualities on others.

Nothing you say makes a lick of sense.

BTW, I'm very far from being a "lefty." I've voted for Republicans at least 4 or 5 times for every 1 vote for any other party. I'm a died-in-the-wool Southern conservative church-goer and a self-made millionaire.

I don't believe you.

You look like a duck, and you are quacking like a duck when it comes to Palin. Amazing how you and the political left sing the same Palin song. The stupidest "Southern conservative church-goer" would not bash Palin like you do.

Nice try. I don't believe you.

There is only one excuse for a " Southern conservative church-goer and a self-made millionaire." to be bashing Palin like you do. And that would be that you are a jealous very ugly female that just can't stand the comparison. But with a name like Charles I doubt that. Which leads me to conclude that you are just a liar and a fraud. certainly not a "Southern conservative church-goer"

No matter how often you repeat it, the fact that somebody disagrees with you doesn't mean that person is liberal, a lefty, or unpatriotic.

You are talking to a conservative southern church-going rich self-made millionaire who is a college graduate, BUT ONE WHO READS AND INFORMS HIMSELF.

Your inability to understand that other people may know something you don't know limits you and hurts your credibility.

Have you taken the test for "knowledge of America's founding principles and texts, core history and enduring institutions" that is available at www.AmericanCivicLiteracy.org ?

My score on that test was 96.97%. What's yours?

I don't know about the rest but you must of missed that little thing that memo from God that Moses was ordered to distribue called the Ten Commandments. Look up old number nine. Nor would any of the died-in-the wool-church-going-southern man I have ever run across would say anything like that about a lady.

...and you do???

In the 70s, the so called scientists scared us with the end of the world scenarious. By the end of the 80s and the 90s, high temperatures will suffocate us, we would starve to death, oceans will rise by double digit feet, stench from dead marine life would make life impossible on our coasts, and England will disappear.

Since last November we came to understand the fraud perpetuated on us by these so called global scientists. Most of them turned out to be mostly economists who only had one goal in mind: distribute the wealth, and taking away our sovereignty.

Let's see:
- "global warming hockey stick - in which the Middle Ages warmth period was squashed, just to prove that the 20th scentury warming was man made.
- Amazon rain forest is not shrinking because of global warming, but because of deforestation.
- the Himalayan glaciers melting is another fraud: "The report by Vijay Kumar Raina, formerly of the Geological Survey of India, seeks to correct widely spread reports that India's 10,000 or so Himalayan glaciers are shrinking rapidly in response to climate change. It's not true, Raina says. The rumors may have originated in the Asia chapter of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC's) 2007 Working Group II report, which claims that Himalayan glaciers ďare receding faster than in any other part of the world and, if the present rate continues, the likelihood of them disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high if the Earth keeps warming at the current rate.Ē.
- EPA Formally Declares CO2 a Dangerous Pollutant - when CO2 is so important to life.
- attending Copenhagen Global Warming conference last year, on the coldest & snowiest time in the last 100 years, brought pollution to a new high (jets, private jets, indoor heating, limo shuttling between Stockholm and Copenhagen when the airport in Copenhagen was too full to handle so many planes...

...etc, etc, etc...the list of hypocrisy continues.

If after East Anglia e-mails have failed to prove the hoax of Global Warming, there is no hope for you, and others like you.

Global Warming is nothing more than 'wealth distribution" and the destruction of US, and the Copenhagen conference had nothing more in mind than to create a global government with powers over us.

Wake up! The Left has been screwing with your mind and naivete for years. It's time for you to take charge of it, and live in reality for a change.

Since last Nov.

In the 70's Science Journals published 44 science papers on global warming & only 7 papers on global cooling.

Pop rags, which you read, toted global cooling. Go to the universities & read the Science Journals.

Or you have absolutely no intelligence at all. You fking people that feel the need to label people as being this or that just because of what they think or feel are really the most pathetic creatures on the planet. Mostly always a republican spouting off how stupid they are because it's evident the only things they understand is what their puppet masters train them. You sad little imp you.

Read on, jerky:

OK, what tea-bagging, climate-change denying, baby-eating redneck birther is making the absurd claim that there's been no measurable Global Warming since 1995?

Oh, it's "climate scientst" Phil Jones; he of the notorious "Hide the decline" emails.

http://snipurl.com/ud0a0

Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now - suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.

And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no 'statistically significant' warming.

So, this means the last fifteen years of hysterical media stories about vanishing polar ice caps, imperiled Polar Bears, vanishing glaciers, heat waves and hurricanes blames on Global Warming, islands sinking into the sea, various years proclaimed "the hottest on record," "the Earth has a fever," have been pretty much... um... what's the word I'm looking for...

http://snipurl.com/ud0a8

Yeah, that's the one.
