Sarah Palin never fails to warm the cockles of my heart. From her ever endearing wink to her seemingly clueless nature she always, always brings a smile to my face.
Then, as if in a dream, she seemed to be talking directly to me — via Twitter.
Sarah, darling, you have me so wrong.
You almost have a point: we’re getting so close to the bottom of the barrel that our addiction to oil is pushing us to extract it from places that we know when things go wrong we have no way of fixing the problem.
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is no exception. Instead of the bayous of Louisiana coated in a thick oil sludge, you’d have one of the most important, biodiverse, and beautiful regions of Alaska pockmarked with rigs, run off ponds, roads, pipelines and there is still potential for massive environmental damage.
