PALIN: Yes, Sen. McCain does support this. The chant is "drill, baby, drill." And that's what we hear all across this country in our rallies because people are so hungry for those domestic sources of energy to be tapped into.

(then, later...)

PALIN: So even in dealing with climate change, it's all the more reason that we have an "all of the above" approach, tapping into alternative sources of energy and conserving fuel, conserving our petroleum products and our hydrocarbons so that we can clean up this planet and deal with climate change.

Presumably deep in the prospective budgets of the Republican party there is an item like:


Tank, storage: crude oil.
Quantity: 1
Capacity: 4 billion barrels
Cost: Difficult to calculate
Purpose: Preserving petroleum products...above ground

There was also a contradiction in Governor Palin's successive assertions that human activity isn't responsible for climate change, that she encourages reduction of emissions in the US, and that we must encourage other nations to curb emissions "that America would not stand for".

China only recently overtook the US as the world's worst polluter...would I be wrong to suggest that it's a little soon to be mounting that high horse?
