It doesn't matter that hurricanes have not become more frequent or stronger as global warming zealots predicted!
Even before the winds from Sandy died down Democrats leapt towards the nearest microphone to take political advantage of the disaster and attempt to promote their left wing environmental agenda. First up with the phony global warming to blame message was New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who has presidential ambitions in 2016. He was followed by former President Bill Clinton who criticized Romney for opposing Obama's wasteful and corrupt green energy program (none of which did or could do one thing to lessen the severity of this or any other storm).
And of course former Vice President Al Gore, who has gotten rich promoting the empty promise of green energy, wouldn't miss the opportunity to earn millions more by insisting that "As the oceans and atmosphere continue to warm, storms are becoming more energetic and powerful." Gore added: "Hurricane Sandy is a disturbing sign of things to come. "
Just one problem for Gore, Clinton, Cuomo and the other green zealots: Hurricane Sandy was the exception to a seven year trend that shows hurricane strength, number and energy at historic lows. Gore and the Greenies attempted to use the year 2005 which saw Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastate the Gulf States as the new normal. But like so many of their dire predictions, the opposite happened.
Climate Depot has the latest commentary and analysis from scientists debunking this latest attempt to politicize a weather event. My favorite: "The gubermint tells us that Irene, Isaac and Sandy are the worst storms ever.
The 2012 drought was the worst ever. 2012 is the hottest year ever.These claims are all completely true, assuming that time began two years ago
and you have the IQ of a turnip."
Meanwhile Democrats have the nerve to criticize Mitt Romney's efforts to raise money and supplies for hurricane victims in the place of campaign rallies earlier this week. They have no shame!
