Move Along, Nothing More to See Here

Speaking of public figures I find ridiculous, remember when McCain was reliable on environment issues? Like, before he started the campaign? His ideas on environmental and climate protection are now at odds with his own party’s platform. But it’s cool, he’s not serious about the environment or global warming in the first place, not now. One can’t be, when one needs the Republican party to actually vote for you, and them’s just the breaks.

By picking Palin, McCain’s gone ahead and given up all pretence of environmentalism.  Palin thinks global warming happens and that it’s bad for Alaska, but she doesn’t think global warming is a man-made phenomenon.  Fortunately, that makes it logical for her to believe the answer to our energy problem is to drill for as much oil as possible, as soon as possible, since our use of fossil fuels has nothing to do with the danger her state and it’s icy resources are in.  She hasn’t offered other ways to solve the energy crisis, and contradicts herself on whether drilling will actually help or just make us feel like we’re doing something.  Plus she is totally into wildlife, in the sense of she likes to kill it.  Details here and here.

She’s not really big on science or truth anyway, so there she’s consistent.

So, hum a dirge for rational, responsible Republican environmentalism, and head on.

(Specifically, head on over to Biden’s record on the environment.  Obama/Biden are the only candidates left with environmental integrity, so it’s now just great that they have an actual plan to solve the energy crisis and reduce our dependance on oil.  Not that voters concerned about the environment won’t have to settle for whatever this pair doles out, but they give a good, strong product, so whew.  Biden is a fine compliment to all the groundwork Obama’s laid on the issue.  Would that they’d talk it up!)
