Big Storm Coming to the East Coast

Global warming?  Sure.  More storms, bigger storms.   Talk to folks who can vote in 2014 to elect the Climate Congress.  I don’t care if the folks you talk to are republicans, democrats or have never bothered to vote.  If they know in their gut that global warming is real and not good news, then we need to mobilize them.  The quadrennial electoral show is staggering to a finish, but at that finish we will not have a president or congress that understands that we need to address global warming.  Our next chance is the midterm election in 2014.  That campaign is underway.  I started.

From North Carolina to the coastal edges of Maine, public officials are urging residents to fortify themselves against Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to unleash torrential rains and winds of up to 75 mph, even for those residing as far as 100 miles from the storm’s center.

Read the whole piece?  Why not?  See if you can find any mention of global warming in the piece on Hurricane Sandy.  I scanned it quickly, lots of talk about shopping in advance of the storm, the campaigns adjusting to be elsewhere, nothing on global warming that I spotted.  It’s like Where’s Waldo?  Where is the mention of global warming in this article?  Let me know if you see it.
