(Newser) – Sarah Palin says Al Gore was wrong to call her a climate change “denier,” even though she doesn’t think humans are “primarily responsible” for global warming. Asked about a Palin op-ed that called for President Obama to boycott the Copenhagen climate change summit, Gore replied, “Deniers are persisting in an era of unreality. … It’s a principle in physics. It’s like gravity. It exists.”

A Facebook post on Palin's page countered, “Perhaps he’s right. Climate change is like gravity—a naturally occurring phenomenon that existed long before, and will exist long after, any governmental attempts to affect it.” She said she wasn’t a “denier” because she does believe in climate change but not that humans cause it. She concluded that Climategate threw doubt on the “larger method” scientists were using, characterizing their findings as “flawed, falsified or inconclusive.”
