Quick Eco-Rundown on Palin

GOP presidential candidate John McCain announced that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be his running mate in the race against Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Here are some quick snapshots of Palin's record on issues related to energy and the environment:

  • Opposed a statewide ballot initiative to prohibit or restrict new mining operations that could affect salmon in the state's streams and rivers

  • Has pushed to build a natural-gas pipeline from Alaska's North Slope

  • Sued the Interior Department over its decision to list the polar bear as a threatened species

  • Has pushed to open Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling
  • Opposes a windfall profits tax on oil companies

  • Was the ethics commissioner of the Alaska Gas and Oil Conservation Commission from 2003 to 2004
If she cares so little about her state and the animals within, what do you think she will do to your state. Thinka about it.
