Sarah Palin's Flip Flop on 'global warming'

I found an interesting article on the recent cold snap that has had people wondering if we were in a "global cooling."

Not even close. In fact, the temperatures in the arctic, where it counts, are still above normal. Some place are 15 degree above normal. It's all about the jet stream, which is letting colder air come further south.

Note this: before Sarah Palin become a national candidate, she was warning about "global warming" destroying parts of Alaska! Why the flip flop?

A few weeks before she mounted the national stage, in July of last year, then-Gov. Palin told her state:

"Alaska's climate is warming. While there have been warming and cooling trends before, climatologists tell us that the current rate of warming is unprecedented within the time of human civilization. Many experts predict that Alaska, along with our northern latitude neighbors, will warm at a faster pace than any other areas, and the warming will continue for decades."

So she was for global warming before she was against it.

Alaska happens to be one of the states where global warming effects are visible - villages are disappearing due to the loss of the permafrost like this one pictured above...
