Sarah Palin—eminent scientist (she wears glasses, after all)—has announced that this Climate Change stuff is “doomsday scare tactics pushed by an environmental priesthood that makes if feel like owning an SUV is a sin against the planet.”

“The basic facts are incontrovertible. What do they think happens when we put 90 million tons up there every day? Is there some magic wand they can wave on it and—presto!—physics is overturned, and carbon dioxide doesn’t trap heat anymore?”
Watching the below, I’m reminded that Al Gore is getting a Ph.D in communication: how do we talk about this stuff without making it partisan, political, ideological, impatient, aggressive, or anti-business?
It’s a tough job, this warning people about future threats gambit: Winston Churchill did no better in the 30s, warning a war-weary world continually about the increasing Nazi strength…he was called a warmonger, and pushed to the edges, far from the center of influence.
