Scientists are always throwing around a bunch of "evidence" for this totally make-believe thing they like to talk about called "global warming" or "climate change" or "liberal bullshit." Of course, intellectually-superior conservative politicians aren't getting fooled. I mean, has anybody ever even come up with any evidence to prove that this "evidence" is real? No!
Well, until now, at any rate. Given the recent events surrounding Hurricane Sandy, conservatives may have finally found their first bit of evidence linking potential disasters with global warming. And his name is New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg…
Mr. Bloomberg, a political independent in his third term leading New York City, has been sharply critical of both Mr. Obama, a Democrat, and Mitt Romney, the president’s Republican rival, saying that both men have failed to candidly confront the problems afflicting the nation. But he said he had decided over the past several days that Mr. Obama was the best candidate to tackle the global climate change that the mayor believes contributed to the violent storm, which took the lives of at least 38 New Yorkers and caused billions of dollars in damage…
"Our climate is changing," he wrote. “And while the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in New York City and around the world may or may not be the result of it, the risk that it may be — given the devastation it is wreaking — should be enough to compel all elected leaders to take immediate action."
Okay, and endorsement from the mayor of a deep blue city in a deep blue state isn't exactly a global catastrophe. But it could be an early warning sign of cataclysmic events and dangerous seismic shifts. First you've got New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie getting all lovey-dovey with Obama on TV, and now this. What's next? Whose potentially damaging endorsement might follow? Bobby Jindal's? Rick Perry's? Who knows.
This could very well be an inconvenient truth that Republicans will be forced to acknowledge eventually.
