In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, former President Clinton blasted Mitt Romney for Romney’s refusal to acknowledge climate change:
“He [Romney] ridiculed the president — ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial ways. He [Romney] said “Oh, you’re going to turn back the seas."
In my part of America [NYC], we would like it if someone could’ve done that yesterday.”
There is a 95% + consensus amongst climatologists that anthropogenic climate change is not only real, but stunningly dangerous to survival on planet Earth. And still, Big Oil--Fossil Fuels [thank you, Koch brothers] has sold America the idea that it doesn’t exist. And this industry has been criminally aided and abetted by Republicans.
