A personal note from Captain Paul Watson @captpaulwatson
"The most powerful storm in American history has just devastated the Eastern coast of the United States and two words were very noticeably absent in the media. CLIMATE CHANGE!!!!
It is going to happen again, and again, and again and the storms will become more powerful over the next decade.
Yet politicians remain silent and the mainstream media has their heads buried in the sand.
“We don’t want to know the truth, we can’t handle the truth!”
And the truth is that ecology is like a test tube. When certain chemical elements are unleashed, in this case carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide and mixed with water vapor a reaction is to be expected especially when combined with a tropical depression, a cold from, extreme low pressure and a very full moon accelerating a rising tide. The result is Frankenstorm.
I’m sure some nutters are going to blame Obama for bringing down the wrath of Democrat-hating God, but if the President is smart he will be on a helicopter today and dropping into the areas hardest hit to assess the damage and give support to the victims.
Anyhow to all my friends in the Eastern United States and Canada, I hope you were not seriously affected by Hurricane Sandy. If you were, I wish you the best in recovering from the damages."
