Please could someone put @algore out the in the path of the hurricane so he can give us live reports on the existence of "climate change?"

From Al Gore's stupid blog:
The images of Sandy’s flooding brought back memories of a similar--albeit smaller scale-- event in Nashville just two years ago. There, unprecedented rainfall caused widespread flooding, wreaking havoc and submerging sections of my hometown. For me, the Nashville flood was a milestone. For many, Hurricane Sandy may prove to be a similar event: a time when the climate crisis—which is often sequestered to the far reaches of our everyday awareness became a reality.
While the storm that drenched Nashville was not a tropical cyclone like Hurricane Sandy, both storms were strengthened by the climate crisis. Scientists tell us that by continually dumping 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere every single day, we are altering the environment in which all storms develop. As the oceans and atmosphere continue to warm, storms are becoming more energetic and powerful. Hurricane Sandy, and the Nashville flood, were reminders of just that. Other climate-related catastrophes around the world have carried the same message to hundreds of millions.Ugh. The Obsolete media will, of course, jump on this and continue the meme.It doesn't matter that when anyone points to record cold conditions in the middle of the winter, the left says, "That's just an outlier!" They pick and choose their facts, like some liberal flake flitting from one religion to the next.
Anyway, warming trends ended sixteen years ago.
