Biden’s Gloomy Outlook
The VP says more extreme weather coming.
Joe Biden was in New York Tuesday discussing ways government investments in infrastructural projects have helped propel the state after Hurricane Sandy swept through the Northeast. And despite the bitter, record shattering Arctic airmass that gripped most of the nation early this week, the vice president just had to throw the topic of man-made global warming into the mix. “We have to rebuild in a way that you will not be victimized by a similar storm again,” he remarked, adding, “If we don’t build smart, if we don’t build resiliency in the communities, we’re not going to be able to in the next two, five, 10, 20 years, live along the coast.” He followed up with his own foolproof outlook: “Now, I know there’s global warming deniers,” he said. “I’m not going to get into that today, but the reality is, [storms like Sandy are] going to continue to happen.” Well, yeah. Mr. Biden should catch up on some history.
