Warmists just can’t help themselves. And they will take lots of fossil fueled travel to make sure you know about it. Here’s NRDC’s Dan Lashof
When are we going to do more to address the causes of climate change, rather than react to its effects?
We don’t know yet what Hurricane Sandy will leave in its wake as it tears its way toward the Northeast United States – although meteorologists are already warning that this “Frankenstorm” could be another billion-dollar disaster – or as one put it, “an economic and human disaster on multiple levels,” if it makes landfall near Long Island or Northern New Jersey.
But here’s what we do know:
This mega-storm is just one more sign of the new normal that will continue as long as we keep avoiding addressing climate change.
Just like the unprecedented droughts, flooding and heat we all experienced this year, storms like Hurricane Sandy is what global warming looks like.
Got that? One big storm is proof, proof I tell you, that Mankind is causing hotcoldwetdry. Remember those huge, massive storms that occurred the previous 10 years or so…..oh, there weren’t? That’s what we call “weather”?
Remember the days when Warmists told us that weather was not climate? That cold weather was no proof that anthropogenic global warming wasn’t fake? Now the Warmists have linked every weather occurrence, even snow and cold, to their pet pseudo-religion.
The looney tunes known as “Connect The Dots”, part of 350.org, held a rally yesterday to paint a picture that Sandy is part of their cult’s hotcoldwetdry beliefs. Hyper-Leftists Joe Romm is all abuzz in attempting to blame HCWD for Sandy, calling it “unprecedented.” It can’t possibly just be a big storm, something that Mother Nature makes happen, no, it’s because you, dear reader, refuse to unplug your DVR when not in use.
And this is one of the reasons people are extracting themselves from the Cult Of Gore: the unhinged and unscientific pronouncements. That, and the people who push it the hardest tend to have the largest “carbon footprints” and refuse to give up their fossil fueled travel, stop using ice makers, and only buy local.
