Palin urges Obama to stay home from Copenhagen

by Greta Kaul

            Sarah Palin published an op-ed piece in the Washinton Post that urged President Barack Obama to boycott the climate change talks in Copenhangen Wednesday.

            The former governor of Alaska accused scientists at the University of East Anglia in Britain of manipulating data and destroying records in order to hide a global temperature decline.

            She said the "Climate-gate" e-mail scandal undermines the science behind the Copenhagen climate summit.

            "Policy should be based sound science, not politics," Palin said.

            Obama's withdrawal from the conference would be shocking, the Los Angeles Times said, as he has been in favor of the United States' re-entry into global climate change talks.

            Obama is expected to make an appearance at the Copenhagen conference's  end next week, the LA Times said.
