What our side needs is a full-time leader. In less than two weeks we will have one.

    yeah, “hungry markets”. i.e. the “Demand” side of “Supply & Demand”

    I’m one of the few here who doesn’t feel you’re stoooopid. But when you comb through a several thousand word op-ed to pounce on 2 words as your “Ah HAH!” moment, I am forced to reconsider my opinion.

    Well, Sarah came after cap and tax sooner than I expected. I’d hoped she would do so in a few weeks, but I’m glad she decided not to wait.

    Lot’s of good stuff in the op ed and she throws the gauntlet down again to Obama & ilk and hits him on several fronts. The “Yes, we can” at the end is really nice!

    There is no shortage of threats to our economy. America’s unemployment rate recently hit its highest mark in more than 25 years and is expected to continue climbing. Worries are widespread that even when the economy finally rebounds, the recovery won’t bring jobs. Our nation’s debt is unsustainable, and the federal government’s reach into the private sector is unprecedented…

    I am deeply concerned about President Obama’s cap-and-trade energy plan, and I believe it is an enormous threat to our economy. It would undermine our recovery over the short term and would inflict permanent damage….

    We can safely drill for U.S. oil offshore and in a tiny, 2,000-acre corner of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge if ever given the go-ahead by Washington bureaucrats.

    Of course, Alaska is not the sole source of American energy. Many states have abundant coal, whose technology is continuously making it into a cleaner energy source. Westerners literally sit on mountains of oil and gas, and every state can consider the possibility of nuclear energy….

    Can America produce more of its own energy through strategic investments that protect the environment, revive our economy and secure our nation?

    Yes, we can. Just not with Barack Obama’s energy cap-and-tax plan.

    If Sarah Palin can turn back the night of Obama with op eds, speaking around the country, raising money for 2010 elections, scaring the Dems and putting them on defense because she has awakened and rallied people against their destructive policies, she will have earned a place of honor and gratitude in our nation’s history for saving our Republic.

    She speaks out for our country because she loves it as we do.

    Palin has a lot of creditability on this issue, and she should hammer it till it’s dead.

    Attacks on her from the elites in this country ring hollow with most Americans. She is a rising star who is down to earth, and regular folks understand and appreciate her. She will be a political force in this country for decades. Predictions of her political death are premature.

    Unfortunately, many in the national media would rather focus on the personality-driven political gossip of the day than on the gravity of these challenges. So, at risk of disappointing the chattering class, let me make clear what is foremost on my mind and where my focus will be:

    Why was this statement even necessary in an opinion piece regarding cap and tax? Yes, we know. Palin and her supporters feel that she was unfairly attacked by the media. We get it. She doesn’t need to wallow in it.

    Actually, we currently have glut of gas and oil in the market. Drilling might not be economically feasible for the companies. What she did not address is the impact of regulatory costs on domestic production. We import from abroad because is it cheaper. Also, the impetus behind cap and trade is not so much “energy independence” but, rather, environmental concerns. I don’t see that her article addressed the issue of global warming/climate change.

    chekote, it is necessary to remind people (as often as possible) that the media is NOT doing their job! Older folks are especially vulnerble because they grew up with a mostly honest media. Yes, it has swung Left and Right over the centruries, and there have ALWAYS been partisan hacks.

    But in general the media DID provide the “news”. Now the media either spins it…or ignores it!

    Folks who still think the NYT (for example) actually DOES provide “all the news that’s fit to print” need to be reminded constantly that that is no longer the case! (hasn’t been for some time)

    Real Climate gives reason to cheer…Though, a couple of the cheerleaders don’t look all that happy.

    Real Climate is squirming because they’ve had to admit something–it looks like they’re trying to justify global cooling as a result of global warming!!!

    We hypothesize that the established pre-1998 trend is the true forced warming signal, and that the climate system effectively overshot this signal in response to the 1997/98 El Niño. This overshoot is in the process of radiatively dissipating, and the climate will return to its earlier defined, greenhouse gas-forced warming signal. If this hypothesis is correct, the era of consistent record-breaking global mean temperatures will not resume until roughly 2020.

    Roger Pielke Jr.’s comment:

    Imagine, twenty-two or more years (1998 to ~2020) of no new global temperature record. What would that do to the debate?

    We hypothesize that the established pre-1998 trend is the true forced warming signal, and that the climate system effectively overshot this signal in response to the 1997/98 El Niño. This overshoot is in the process of radiatively dissipating, [We fully expect NO ONE, including us, to understand that statement!] and the climate will return to its earlier defined, greenhouse gas-forced warming signal. [Which we made up in the first place!] If this hypothesis is correct, the era of consistent record-breaking global mean temperatures will not resume until roughly 2020. [And if it’s NOT correct, by 2020 you will have forgotten we ever dreamed it up in the first place!!]

    The article is not written by Sullivan. It was posted on his blog. In any case, if Palin is going to effectively fight cap and trade she needs to address the issue of global warming, environmental concerns likes pollution. Outlining the domestic oil and gas reserves will not make a dent.

    Palin’s emerging role is educating people about what she knows best, which is energy resources.

    Yes, it would be appropriate to bring in climate change in her speech, but only in passing, not as the major part of her op ed piece.

    There are “experts” out there already clamoring for “speech bubbles” in order to debunk all the “science” out there. If she goes out there and acts like a “scientist” then she will be diluting her own mission of bringing more options to the table and refuting those of the Obama administration.

    By all means, go out there an make abortion the top issue. And when you do, don’t try to hide the real agenda (which is to ban all abortions with a few exceptions) by just focusing the debate on PBA. I wish the GOP did just that. Put this issue at the center of their campaign. Above the economy. Above healthcare. Above foreign policy. Front and center, I say.

    The economy is #1
    Defense is # 2
    Immigration is # 3 and ties in with #2….The RNC so-called leadership never gets this and won’t…They also should sever their ties with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and actually take the side of Americans who don’t want cheap labor competing with them for every job.
    Judges is # 4…bringing up Sotomayer and Ginsburg and contrasting their views with Alito & Roberts…..

    Sarah has touched a nerve!

    They’ve known she’s a threat since last August. That’s why they never left her alone in Alaska to fade into obscurity.

    From CNN, via C4P:

    …MoveOn.org began e-mailing members Tuesday, asking them to fund a rapid response ad blasting Palin’s new Washington Post op-ed that criticized President Obama’s position on “cap and trade” legislation — a major part of the administration’s effort to overhaul the nation’s energy policy.

    The group said Palin was positioning herself as the face of conservative opposition to Obama’s energy policy, telling supporters her op-ed was “a marvel of misinformation and outright lies.”

    I am comparing her in terms of having the “right” enemies. Most of her support is comparable to how Berry got support despite his shortcomings as a mayor. Berry got elected and re-elected because AA felt marginalized and saw Berry as a vehicle to “stick it” to the DC elites. Palin is exactly the same phenomena. Conservatives – itching for a fight, frustrated by the election results – are supporting Palin as a way to stick it to the MSM and the DC elites. This is not good.

    By the way, off topic, but there might be a good thing about Sotomayor on the Supremes……she is overwieght and my wife tells me she is diabetic. Not your basic live forever prescription. Yes, it is a mean thought…..they get tired of hearing it at confession.

    the “DC pressure” has been there non-stop for nearly a year now. I think she knows.

    BUT, she has been shackled…first by the McCain camp, and then after the election by the insects DIRECTED to buzz around her and keep distracted and TIED DOWN!

    Well now she is a free-rabbit!! You’ve said: “We’ll see”. So STFU and see!

    Going off-topic for a moment, Sotomayor either lied like a rug today, or she’s so stupid she didn’t understand the questions.

    I always loved her as a candidate. I was disappointed in her embrace of amnesty (what else could she do?) and am afraid she will do that again.

    I also agree with Chekote that she needs more rhetorical polish, and quite a bit more.

    But, she was the only reason I voted McCain.

    So let me make sure I got this right. You are not convinced that Palin is presidential material. So you contribute money to her so she can help in 2010 by campaigning for conservative Democrats whose first act in Congress will be to vote to put Pelosi and Reid in charge. That makes sense.

    Earlier this morning I mentioned that Palin should have addressed global warming in her piece. The reason the Dems are pushing Cap and Trade is because of environmental issues. So you have to attack the premise of global warming:

    What Gov Palin remembered is that while Americans are concerned about energy, they are not concerned about global warming.

    So she struck the right note. Let others debate the science…If she’d said anything about warming, you’d have mocked her as an idiot trying to be a scientist…

    So it is effective to talk about healthcare without mentioning the risings costs? The reason the Dems are pushing Cap and Trade is because of this global warming/environment. You need to attack the premise. If you want to be effective in your attack.

    More news from WUWT? Remember that Jim Hansen, rabid global warming advocate, is with NASA:

    GISS for June – way out there

    NASA GISS has released their global temperature anomaly data for June 2009 and it is quite the surprise.

    In both the UAH and RSS satellite data sets, global temperature anomaly went down in June. GISS went up, and is now the largest June anomaly since 1998…

    My emphasis.

    INC permalink

    The next post at WUWT? contains more details:

    GISS: World’s airports continue to run warmer than ROW

    This month’s whopping anomaly of 0.63C is once again much higher than that of RSS, UAH, and even NOAA, which is the source of the GISS temperature data. Not only is the anomaly higher than the other metrics, but it is trending in the opposite direction.

    Temperature data from 1079 stations worldwide contributed to the analysis…

    Once again, the bulk of temperatures comprising the present-day worldwide GISS average come from airports – in this case 554 airports, according to the NOAA metadata from the V2 station inventory….

    Why worry about airports? Aside from recent posts on this site documenting problems with airport ASOS equipment in the US, WUWT has also documented a number of equipment siting problems, notably the typical close proximity of the equipment to a tarmac heat sink. Airports can introduce a mini-UHI effect where one would otherwise not be found.

    The NOAA metadata is not entirely accurate, and several stations located at airports are not noted as such…Those stations were easy to find because they had “airport” (or some variant) in the station name. A check of coordinates using Google Earth confirmed the airport locations.

    NOAA says that 345 of the stations it passes on to GISS are rural and presumably free of UHI influence. Fifteen of those stations are located in the US. However, only 201 of those rural stations are not located at an airport, and therefore presumably free of UHI effects (including tarmac heat sinks). In the US, only one of the fifteen stations is listed as both rural, and not located at an airport…

    Then there is this doozy:

    “There appears to be something fundamentally wrong with the way temperature and carbon are linked in climate models.”

    WUWT? links to this article in e! Science News and quotes from it:

    Global warming: Our best guess is likely wrong

    No one knows exactly how much Earth’s climate will warm due to carbon emissions, but a new study this week suggests scientists’ best predictions about global warming might be incorrect….

    “In a nutshell, theoretical models cannot explain what we observe in the geological record,” said oceanographer Gerald Dickens, a co-author of the study and professor of Earth science at Rice University. “There appears to be something fundamentally wrong with the way temperature and carbon are linked in climate models.”

    INC, that is good data but accepting the premise that carbon affects environment is absurd on its face. We have had much higher levels of carbon in ice ages and much lower levels in warmer periods. Accepting computer models is ridiculous….they have only been famously wrong.

    Models have no demonstrative track records. The amount of man made atmospheric carbon is miniscule. Has anyone ever heard of the sun? Good grief, I am living in an insane asylum. If America cannot grasp this con then I will be a happy man when I die….God will have promoted me.
