"Please give me any additional information about the 17,000 scientists who say that there is no convincing evidence that greenhouse gasses will disrupt the earth's climate. When did they sign this petition? Who did they give it to? How can I find out about this? Any websites, ect?"

It was a bad idea to provide only two choices. The correct answer is that nobody knows because it depends a lot on what she does between now and then. If, 4 years from now, she were still governor of Alaska, I don't think she'd have a chance of winning the Republican nomination, let alone the fall election, because she would have had no experience with national issues. But if she ran for and was elected to Congress, she might have a chance.

"Do you believe eating in the church is wrong and having entertainment is wrong? If No, then read 1 Cor. 11:22 and 34, also read Romans 14:17"

These verses have nothing to do with eating in the church, or with "having entertainment" (whatever that means). They refer to abuse of the Lord's Supper by treating the elements of communion as food and drink rather than as a rememberance of Christ.

The issue is addressed in Acts 2:46-47a: "Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people." (NIV)

As far as "having entertainment" is concerned, this was addressed during the ministry of Jesus, when he used entertaining stories (called parables) to communicate his message.

"Do you believe having institutions and orphan homes is wrong? If No, Read 1 Timothy 5:16"

Nothing about orphans in this verse. It does say, however, that the church is to look after widows who are in need, though a woman who is a believer should not use this as an excuse not to care for widows in her own family.

The issue of widows and orphans is addressed in James 1:27, which says: "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." (NIV)

"Is taking the Lord's Supper once a month wrong? If no, Read 1 Cor. 11:23-33...he says "every" 1st day of the week"

Nothing about "'every' 1st day of the week" in this passage. Verse 26 says "For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until he comes." But it doesn't say how "often" this is to be. It seems clear, though, that the church, throughout most of its history, has done it every Sunday.

"Is Instumental Music wrong. If no, Read Col. 3:16 and 17, Eph. 5:19"

Nothing in any of these verses about whether we should use instruments. But the issue is addressed in Psalm 150:3-5, where we are commanded to use instruments to praise God.
