Contrary to ABC Report, Palin’s Global Warming Views Have Been Consistent
In its exclusive interview with Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, ABC News reported that she has “softened” her view on global warming and whether it is man-made, putting her closer in sync with John McCain. However, contrary to ABC, Palin has never said that human activity does not affect climate change, or that it does not.
Further, in a New York Times op-ed this year, Palin said: “What is justified is worldwide concern over the proven effects of climate change.”
Nonetheless, ABC is reporting that Palin has somehow changed her view on the issue
“I believe that man's activities certainly can be contributing to the issue of global warming, climate change,” said Palin, but it could also be natural planetary “warming and cooling trends.”

Palin responded that the science is not definitive, arguing that whether global warming is “wholly caused by man's activities or is part of the cyclical nature of our planet,”
