    "While it did not take long it was expected. Former vice president Al Gore put out a statement on his blog on Tuesday and blamed the intensity of Hurricane Sandy on "global warming pollution." :
    The images of Sandy’s flooding brought back memories of a similar--albeit smaller scale-- event in Nashville just two years ago. There, unprecedented rainfall caused widespread flooding, wreaking havoc and submerging sections of my hometown. For me, the Nashville flood was a milestone. For many, Hurricane Sandy may prove to be a similar event: a time when the climate crisis—which is often sequestered to the far reaches of our everyday awareness became a reality.
    While the storm that drenched Nashville was not a tropical cyclone like Hurricane Sandy, both storms were strengthened by the climate crisis. Scientists tell us that by continually dumping 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere every single day, we are altering the environment in which all storms develop. As the oceans and atmosphere continue to warm, storms are becoming more energetic and powerful. Hurricane Sandy, and the Nashville flood, were reminders of just that. Other climate-related catastrophes around the world have carried the same message to hundreds of millions.
    Gore concluded at the end of his blog that "dirty energy makes dirty weather.":
    Hurricane Sandy is a disturbing sign of things to come. We must heed this warning and act quickly to solve the climate crisis. Dirty energy makes dirty weather.
    New York and New England were hit with powerful hurricanes in 1821 and 1938. In 1821, the hurricane was called, The Great September Gale. In 1938, the hurricane, aptly named the Long Island Express, slammed New York and New England with winds of up to 120 MPH. The Berkshire Eagle lists other hurricanes and tropical storms dating back to 1635 that have hit the east coast.
    Is Mr. Gore saying that these massive hurricanes were caused by some form of man-made global warming...really? Please."
     
  2. More comic relief from the libturds :p

    Of course Al Gore says it is global warming. In reality though, He has already taken his net worth from a couple million to over two hundred million thanks to Obama's $90 Billion dump of taxpayer money into these companies. It was just like the govenment wrote a $200 million check directly to Al Gore because of his advocacy. Was any of it a success? I haven't seen any. Some are still alive, others are gone and so is our money.

    Bottom line - Government has no business dumping our money into private business. It's not allowed in the Constitution and the Constitution is a document saying what the Federal Government CAN do not what it CAN'T do. Meaning if the Constitution doesn't specifically allow it, it is unConstitutional.

    Liberals are just idiots.

    Sandy soaked the East Coast -- but is global warming to blame?

    New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Mayor Mike Bloomberg told the country in no uncertain terms on Tuesday that devastating superstorm Sandy was clear proof of climate change.

    'Anyone who says there's not a dramatic change in weather patterns, I think is denying reality,” Cuomo said in a press conference. "What is clear is that the storms that we've experienced in the last year or so, around this country and around the world, are much more severe than before," Bloomberg agreed.

    But scientists say the evidence is far less concrete than the politicians appear to believe.

    Martin Hoerling, a meteorologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), said Sandy wasn’t boosted by global warming -- the storm merely revealed natural forces at work.

    “Great events can have little causes,” he told the New York Times. “In this case, the immediate cause is most likely little more that the coincidental alignment of a tropical storm with an extratropical storm.”

    Indeed, rather than fueling the storm, Hoerling stressed that climate change has little to no effect upon hurricanes.

    “Neither the frequency of tropical or extratropical cyclones over the North Atlantic are projected to appreciably change due to climate change, nor have there been indications of a change in their statistical behavior over this region in recent decades,” he said.

    Andrew Weaver, a climate scientist with Canada’s University of Victoria, agreed that climate change didn't make an ordinary storm extraordinary.

    "The ingredients of this storm seem a little bit cooked by climate change, but the overall storm is difficult to attribute to global warming," Weaver told the Associated Press.

    But the science is anything but clear cut. Michael Mann, a Penn State University scientist who has been studying the climate for decades, said that ocean waters were about 1 degree warmer thanks to manmade climate change, one factor that clearly caused Sandy to swell.

    Others pressed for policy to deal with global warming, arguing that the such storms are clear proof of man’s effect on the planet -- and we’re in for it in the future.

    “The terrifying truth is that America faces a future full of Frankenstorms,” said Shaye Wolf, climate science director at the Center for Biological Diversity. “Climate change raises sea levels and supersizes storms. The threat of killer winds and crushing storm surges will grow by the year unless we get serious about tackling greenhouse gas pollution.”

    To further complicate matters, climate scientists and hurricane experts largely conclude that as the climate warms, there will be fewer hurricanes overall, although those that hit will be stronger and wetter, according to the Associated Press.

    So why was Sandy such a doozy?

    Several factors contributed to the strength of the hurricane, beyond the standard elements that cause the storms to brew up in the tropics: a low-pressure trough dipping from the Arctic, higher tides thanks to a full moon, and a high-pressure system pushing the storm onshore.

    "You've got three factors here that have come together in just the right pattern to create a storm of this type," David Robinson, a Rutgers University professor and New Jersey's state climatologist, told LiveScience. "That's why it's very rare."

    this is why you can't elect democrat crack pots.

    they will take a storm and extrapolate we need to spend trillions on global warming.

    what about all the other storms we had through the decades.

    what about the fact that there has been no warming the last 15 years.
     
  6. + 1 well said and TRUE.
     
  7. Well, if Obama does win, don't you think that the GOP will blame Sandy? May as well be an Act of God causing Romney's demise. Perhaps better if it is caused by man, at least for Fox purposes.
