(Newser) – Speaking at a logging conference in northern California tonight, Sarah Palin ripped studies supporting global-warming theories as a “bunch of snake oil science.” The former Alaska governor touted her climate-change-doubter credentials at the event—from which media were barred, though the AP procured a $74 ticket for its reporter—noting her attempts to declaw federal action to characterize the polar bear as an endangered species.
