Statement on Hurricane Sandy
Al Gore ^ | October 30, 2012 | Al Gore

Posted on 10/30/2012 4:00:21 PM PDT by mdittmar

This week, our nation has anxiously watched as Hurricane Sandy lashed the East Coast and caused widespread damage--affecting millions. Now more than ever, our neighbors need our help. Please consider donating or volunteering for your local aid organizations.

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.

Sandy was also affected by other symptoms of the climate crisis. As the hurricane approached the East Coast, it gathered strength from abnormally warm coastal waters. At the same time, Sandy's storm surge was worsened by a century of sea level rise. Scientists tell us that if we do not reduce our emissions, these problems will only grow worse.

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.

Bad weather = proof of AGW
Good weather = proof of AGW

Weather on Mars = proof of AGW

Hey, when no matter what happens your guess is “proven” you can’t lose!

Many “scientists” will drop all pretense of objectivity if you dangle enough $$ in front of them.

He's giving away his secret here. Both storms were propagandized into appearing larger than they actually were by Al Gore's fake global warming crisis.

What? I thought Al Gore would have exploded a long time ago. Last time I saw him he was blown up like a puffer fish. I figured he was full of methane and the smallest spark...kaboom!

The Nashville flood was ignored by the MSM and Obama. I never heard Obama publicly say anything about the Nashville flood. Now liberals wantto talk about the Nashville flood? What the heck????

That abnormally warm coastal water that ManBearPig mentioned is the GULF Stream!!

I hope we win this election by a landslide so we have a clear mandate.

Al Gore is right! There is not one single documented satellite photograph of a hurricane before global warming started in 1580, not one!

"Please consider donating or volunteering for your local aid organizations."

All this from the guy whose tax forms , as VP, showed him donating something like $500 per year. After Drudge, FR, et al mocked this, he raised it to a couple of thousand per year.

I mean, this guy makes Joe Biden look like Henry Ford and the Ford Foundation.
