Clear as Mud?

In case you missed the explanation that VP candidate Sarah Palin offered to ABC’s Charlie Gibson regarding her stand on anthropogenic climate change, this discussion and video clip at may be clarifying–or not. The governor may not literally be able to see Russia from her house, as her Tina Fey doppelganger suggested on Saturday Night Live but she’s certainly had a front-row seat on the effects of rapid warming in the higher latitudes.

Also under the heading of “in case you missed it,” worth hearing is the America Abroad special that aired last week on KQED Radio. Co-hosted by Ray Suarez and Deborah Amos, Feeling the Heat explores the positions of the two major candidates on climate change, as well as the history of climate science.
