Sarah Palin has declared that climate change is the eugenics movement of the 21st century.
Piggybacking on a Weather Channel co-founder John Coleman's denial of man-made climate change, Palin posted a video from her online channel to her Facebook page Monday. In the video, Palin says she neither doubts "that climate change exists" nor considers herself a "denier."
But while she says she can see the incremental effects of climate change on the Alaska coastline, she asserts her belief that there is no scientific evidence proving that those changes are caused by human activity.
"The global warming hysteria is to this century what eugenics was to the last," she wrote in the Facebook post. "So much of it is junk science that will inevitably be discredited once the hysteria dies down and actual science prevails."
The former Republican vice presidential nominee also took a shot at the "heartless" liberals who draw attention to the issue. In the video, she argued that combating climate change hurts the poor by cutting off access to affordable energy sources.
