(Newser) – Contending that the so-called “Climategate” emails prove how politicized and flawed the ongoing summit is, Sarah Palin urges President Obama to boycott the Copenhagen gathering. “The agenda-driven policies being pushed in Copenhagen won’t change the weather,” she writes in the Washington Post, “but they would change our economy for the worse.”

In blasting “appalling actions by so-called climate-change experts,” Palin says Obama will endorse “fraudulent scientific practices” in pressing for an agreement. “Whatever deal he gets, it will be no deal for the American people. What Obama really hopes to bring home from Copenhagen is more pressure to pass the Democrats' cap-and-tax proposal,” she writes—“misguided legislation” that’s “the last thing America needs.”
