Palin blasts 'arrogance of man' in Copenhagen

The now-finished climate change summit in Copenhagen marks the "arrogance of man," former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) said this weekend.

Palin, who had urged President Barack Obama not to attend the conference in Denmark, blasted the agreement world leaders made late on Friday to begin stemming emissions that contribute to climate change.

Palin tweeted early Saturday morning:

Copenhgen=arrogance of man2think we can change nature's ways.MUST b good stewards of God's earth,but arrogant&naive2say man overpwers nature

Earth saw clmate chnge4 ions;will cont 2 c chnges.R duty2responsbly devlop resorces4humankind/not pollute&destroy;but cant alter naturl chng


Those tweets and previous skepticism the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee has expressed toward global warming science has led some to label her a climate change "denier."

But Palin has maintained that she does not deny that climate change exists, and that she only questions the extent of the change and what sort of policies should be put in place to address it.

Obama hammered out what the White House has called a "meaningful agreement" with China, India, and South Africa to stem the forces behind global warming late on Friday evening.
