What else happened during Sarah Palin’s speech (the ice shelf collapsed)

from a correspondent–

Alaska and Tucson forever associated… Perhaps she can give you a free ride:
http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/hourlyupdate/256059.php
This article asks whether she will put on eBay her new plane.

OOPS, she ordered Al Gore to stop flying his plane. Presumably it was a reference to climate change. The only one during her speech. Now she got a plane with a big carbon footprint. She can transport some moose or hundred reporters.

Her Al Gore joke contrasted with a week full of estimates of the magnitude of the expected magnitude of the sea level rise, news about the Canadian ice shelf loss and of polar bears in peril. Neither the media nor the pundits tearing apart her speech thought of asking whether she has any plan (or plane) to relocate the affected Native populations.

No one thinks about relocation nor have they much. There are several hundred towns which must be relocated some or great distances, including houses, schools, electrical plants, sewage, garbage, telephones, churches, graveyards, water treatment, etc etc.

By the way, the Republican Murkowski jet, which was unable to visit most places in Alaska (no runways large enough), did NOT sell on e-Bay. It finally had to be given away, relatively speaking.

    Answer to energy needs: “Drill, baby, drill!”

    One of the climate-related questions Alaska’s senators are facing is what to do for villages like Shishmaref, which are suffering coastal erosion.

    Here’s what I don’t understand about urban elitists. They drive huge SUVs in the city. For what? Are the roads that bad there? They whine about rural America, but I notice they love to eat chemically laden food. Urban elitists are not part of the problem; they are the entire problem when it comes to global warming.

    If city folks were serious about slowing global warming, they’d stop using all the energy. Seriously, how much energy was used to run the Democratic convention? Are we to believe that the planet only gets warmer when Republicans use energy. Give me a break.

    Sarah Palin is an advocate for rural America, and she is welcomed here. If you really want to know what rural Americans think and what it’s like to live here, visit http://www.RFDAmerica.com.

    One last think, I’m an organic dairy farmer. I was green way before the Gore and Moore show came along. These guys are both posers.
