Sarah Palin Teams Up With Discovery Company: An Unnatural Match? (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

In her next move, Sarah Palin is teaming up with The Discovery Company's TLC for a new series, "Sarah Palin's Alaska," which will take a documentary tour of her home state. We find it ironic that the notorious anti-environmentalist will be given a platform by one TV's biggest nature-driven companies, which owns networks such as Discovery, Animal Planet and Planet Green. In that vein, we're taking a look at some of Palin's biggest anti-environmental stances and contrasting them with the decidedly environmentally-friendly programming put on by The Discovery Company. Take a look, and let us know which pairing you find most ridiculous.

Endangered Species
1 of 11
Palin fought hard against polar bears getting endangerment status, going so far as to sue the federal government. In a New York Times op-ed, she argued that polar bears "are worthy of our utmost efforts to protect them and their Arctic habitat. But adding polar bears to the nation’s list of endangered species, as some are now proposing, should not be part of those efforts."

Palin also challenged the federal government over the listing of the Cook Inlet beluga whale as an endangered species, citing its interference with oil and gas development.
