McCain's VP Choice Sarah Palin and the Environment

Kudos to Sarah Palin for making the leap so quickly from president of the PTA to possible Vice President of the United States of the America. Her quick ascension into the national ranks of the Republican party, speaks volumes about her work ethic and political intelligence. She has however, been criticized by environmentalists for her positions on the following issues:

  • Supports drilling in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge
  • Sued the government to remove polar bears from the endangered species list
  • Doubts that global warming is human induced
  • Feels that drilling is the way to go, because alternative energy could take too long to develop
  • Close ties to the oil industry
