Sarah Palin Shifting Position on Global Warming Cause? Stands Firm on ANWR

ABC will be running an interview with Sarah Palin this evening on no less than three of its programs (World News, 20/20 and Nightline) and as Earth2Tech puts it, has been milking them for all they’re worth. In the run-up to that interview, last night on Nightline Charlie Gibson spoke with Palin about her view on global warming—she seems to be coming around slightly on global warming being caused by man—as well as her steadfast support of drilling for oil in ANWR. How Far She's Come?
As an indication on either a) how far she's shifted position for the better or b) how far she's willing to bend to the party line in public at least, Think Progress points out that last December Palin told an Alaskan paper that

I’m not an Al Gore, doom-and-gloom environmentalist blaming the changes in our climate on human activity.

You can make you own decision whether Palin's shift on global warming is a genuine conversion or mere politically pandering.
