Kean, Florio: Hurricane Sandy
rebuilding effort is opportunity
to confront climate change

Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by James J. Florio and Thomas H. Kean

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 11/18/2012 1:37:46 PM

In the United States, we have a tradition of honoring our losses with calls to action. This element of our American character — learning and growing from crises — provides opportunities for us to demonstrate leadership to our fellow citizens here at home and to others abroad. The losses from Hurricane Sandy are tragic, heart-wrenching and devastating. Like so many others in New Jersey, we find it hard to put into words the sincere and deep sorrow we have felt over the personal, emotional and economic toll taken on so many New Jerseyans from Cape May to High Point,

Comments:
Two former liberal governors of New Jersey—"Flim Flam" Florio and Tom "Jamie Gorelick?/9-11" Kean—suggest we need a new Marshall Plan (no doubt with "federal funds") to buttress the Garbage State against the menace of global warming.

What they are really saying is, get ready for the U.N. Agenda 21 plantations. Perfect crises to install humans on a select space for sustainable (prisons) er....communities.

Where exactly is the scientific evidence that climate change had anything whatsoever to do with Sandy? I must have missed that.

Question!
I´m sorry if it seems like a dumb one. Maybe the answer is obvious and may I just missed it, but here goes...
When has the climate ever NOT changed?

1. And, sirs, your credentials in atmospheric physics and chemistry are -- ?

2. No doubt well-grounded in the above sciences, the processes of AGW are -- ?

As I have no doubt correctly anticipated your replies [or non-replies?] to the above, I have two suggestions.

a. Go away.

The areas flooded in New York were the reclaimed land where various trash had been dumped since the 1700´s. Nature just sent the water up to the old shoreline.

So... tear down all those buildings and restore back to the wetlands that were there.

Marblemouth Kean and Marblehead Florio - - two freaking idiots.

Their glo-bull warming hurricane was followed a few days later by a freak early-November blizzard. So - - let´s just focus on the hurricane - - and ignore that inconvenient blizzard which ripped through New Juhuhuhuhuhuhsey.

Being idiots is their problem - - but when they hold our intelligence in contempt - - then they´ve got a problem with US!

Political opportunism, making partisan advantage of other people´s sorrow. Apparently any sorrow will do: I hadn´t noticed any victims complaining about unseasonable heat. If hurricanes are markers climate change then what does it mean there have been so few in recent years? These people predict everything right after it happens, and are ready with a policy prescription, always the same one. Policymaking ambulance chasers.

Mutt and Jeff! Whatever multi-billion dollar plan NJ comes up with...it is the insurance companies that will decide if and what will be rebuilt. And that, my fellow Ldoters is very problematic.

Most of us recycle to reduce waste. These guys never let a crisis go to waste.

The "blame it on Bush" analysis doesn´t work here, so they "blame it on CO2" Equally stupid.

Meet Mr Poo - India´s anti-public

Meet Mr Poo: The lumpy, brown anthropomorphised faeces that is the face of Unicef´s latest public health campaign in India. Accompanied by an insanely catchy techno-Bollywood-style anthem, Mr Poo features in a very silly and surreal new video aimed at raising awareness of the health dangers associated with public defecation in India. Though the video is light-hearted; the issue is a serious one. Globally, India has the largest number of people, more than 620 million, still defecating in the open. Only about half the population of the country use toilets. According to the Poo2Loo campaign, which is supported

Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor, is being investigated by police after he crashed into a parked car and then drove off without informing the owner. The Labour MP for Morley and Outwood has admitted that he found himself in a “tight spot” and realised that he knocked the Peugeot 306 whilst making a seven point turn in his Ford Mondeo estate, but says he left the scene thinking he had not caused any damage. (Snip) It is the fourth time the Labour frontbencher, who once described his beloved 1.8 litre family car as the most expensive thing he has ever

Trenton — The law firm hired by Gov. Chris Christie´s office that cleared him and current staff aides of any wrongdoing in the George Washington Bridge scandal donated $10,000 to a national political group the governor currently heads, according to a published report. The Record reported late Tuesday night that Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher gave $10,000 to the Republican Governors Association — nine days before it released a report that cleared the governor in last year´s controversial lane closings at the bridge. Although critics called the report a "whitewash," Christie said the firm´s lawyers have reputations to uphold and wouldn´t

A Philadelphia woman is facing federal charges for allegedly collecting five years worth of unemployment compensation and failing to report the income on her tax return forms, all while working full time for the Internal Revenue Service. Lora Lewis, 51, also allegedly took numerous tax credits for which she was not eligible, including a first-time homebuyers’ credit, an earned income credit and an education credit, the U.S. Attorney´s Office for Eastern Pennsylvania said. Lewis is further accused of claiming bogus tax deductions, including IRA contributions that were never made and an automobile that was never purchased, in a bid to

Police are investigating three recent attacks in the city they believe are part of the “knockout" game, in which an unsuspecting person is attacked for no reason with the goal of knocking the person out with one punch. The three attacks this month have occurred in the 700 block of Main Street, the area of 87 Millbury St. and on Chatham near Main Street. (Snip) Police said all three male victims were walking alone when they were approached by a male they did not know. The suspects would without provocation or warning punch the victims in the face or head

Well it’s official: The cold season of 2013-14 is the snowiest on record for the metro area. The 3.1 inches of snow that fell Monday night into Tuesday morning brought this season’s total to 94.8 inches, topping the old record of 93.6 inches set during 1880-81. (Snip) The normal amount of snow for the metro area is 42.5 inches. Flint also set a record for total snowfall, receiving 83.4 inches this winter, compared to the 82.9 inches set in 1974-75.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
