There has been a climate silence.
It’s really important that everybody, even those who aren’t in the kind of path of this storm, reflect about what it means that in the warmest year in U.S. history, … in a year when we saw, essentially, summer sea ice in the Arctic just vanish before our eyes, what it means that we’re now seeing storms of this unprecedented magnitude.”
A special shout-out to my in-laws on Long Island who we’ve been trying to contact today: Hope you’re safe!
My thoughts are with everyone in the path of this storm, which is hopefully just over-hyped.

(Skip ahead to the 14-minute mark for the meat of the video be sure to stay-tuned for a clip of Mitt Romney ridiculing the idea of rising sea levels.)
On a lighter note…
