I hate Sarah Palin and it has nothing to do with her anti-reproductive freedom stance. It has to do with a hunting program in Alaska which Governor Palin is an active promoter of. Under this program bears and wolves are either shot from the air or chased by air to the point of exhaustion. The pilot then lands and the “hunter” kills them.
This is what aerial hunting looks like and it is not pretty:
Palin continues to question the validity of global warming and our responsibility in it, defying worldwide scientific consensus. And her “drill here, drill now!” approach to energy issues will do nothing to ease the causes of global warming, promote the use of clean, renewable energy sources nor break our addiction to foreign oil.
Sarah Palin on Endangered Species:
Palin has repeatedly opposed the listing of endangered animals under the Endangered Species List despite overwhelming scientific evidence that such listings are warranted. Specifically, Palin opposed the listing of polar bears on the list despite top marine biologists in Alaska agreeing that polar bears should be listed.
Palin also has an issue with beluga whales and opposes the listing of such whales as endangered despite the fact that their numbers have decreased from 1300 in the 1980s to about 350 today. The reason for her opposition? It would interfere with drilling for oil and gas.
Palin actively campaigned against a ballot measure aimed at protecting Bristol Bay from gold and copper mining that would pollute the Bay’s headwaters and threaten the spawning grounds for the largest remaining wild salmon run. (see above link about Bristol Bay)
