Sarah Palin Pushes Renewable Energy

Alaska Climate change is a daily reality for Alaskan citizens. On the barrier island of Shishmaref, just 20 miles south of the Arctic circle, residents struggle against the rising sea level and storm surges that threaten to wash out their village.

As the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers works on a solution to replacing the melted ice wall barricade, Gov. Sarah Palin recently announced her plan to combat global warming with a statewide goal of producing half of Alaska's electricity from renewable sources by 2025.

The plan, which is not an actual plan for action but a detailed list of resources, proposes a bold shift from fossil fuels and expensive diesel to wind, hydro, tidal and geothermal energy. Looks like the Republicans' "Drill, baby, drill" is growing up.
