Please, just shut up and do your jobs. Use the governor of New Jersey as an example. He’s worked himself to near collapse by tonight while these clowns preen for the cameras and spew psychobabble.
Hurricane Sandy may have seemed uniquely damaging to those caught in its path, but some have suggested that global warming could bring even more devastating storms to the U.S. in coming years.
New York governor Andrew Cuomo and mayor Michael Bloomberg both pointed to climate change as the culprit for Sandy’s ravages as they addressed the scale of the destruction on Tuesday morning.
And Cuomo even raised the possibility of a levee being built in New York Harbor, an unprecedented move to protect the 400-year-old city.
Many observers have pointed out that it is almost impossible to pinpoint climate change as the cause of specific weather events.
Moreover, the U.S. has long been subject to hurricanes and other damaging storms which have been just as violent as Sandy.
But when have facts ever gotten in the way of the loony climate change agenda?
But the terrors wrought by Sandy, combined with last year’s destructive Hurricane Irene, have led New York’s top officials to raise the spectre of global warming.
At a press conference in Manhattan on Tuesday, Cuomo said he had told President Obama that ‘we have a 100-year flood every two years now’.
He added: ‘There has been a series of extreme weather incidents. That is not a political statement. That is a factual statement.
‘Anyone who says there’s not a dramatic change in weather patterns, I think is denying reality.’
The reality is Sandy was a historic storm having nothing to do with junk science, despite the deranged agenda of a couple of far left politicians looking to score cheap political points while their constituents cope with a disaster. Do either of these tools think anyone currently shivering in the dark is talking about climate change?
Bloomberg echoed the sentiment, saying: ‘What is clear is that the storms we’ve experienced in the last year or so around this country and around the world are much more severe than before.
‘Whether that’s global warming or what, I don’t know, but we’ll have to address those issues.’
Um, no, we won’t. Just be better prepared for bad weather. Meanwhile, actual scientists reject the silliness of the bloviating blowhards.
However, many experts have denied that climate change was behind Hurricane Sandy – Houston Chronicle science reporter Eric Bergen wrote that the connection was ‘a stretch that is just not supported by science at this time.’
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has previously said that there is little evidence global warming worsens tropical storms and hurricanes.
