Sandy disrupts climate vigil in Boston
Boston Globe ^ | 10/29/12 | Beth Dailey

Posted on 10/29/2012 12:02:26 PM PDT by raccoonradio

A storm many environmentalists see as linked to climate change has forced the end of a climate vigil in Boston. Some 200 people had participated in a round-the-clock vigil since last Tuesday to protest the lack of discussion of climate change in the presidential debate and call on Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren to discuss the issue during their final scheduled debate Tuesday.

“The fact that this storm was made worse by climate change [is] not lost on us,’’ said Vanessa Rule, a mother of two from Somerville and Coordinator of 350 Massachusetts, a volunteer-led network staffed by Cambridge-based Better Future Project. “We hope the candidates address this Frankenstorm and the effects of climate change in the remainder of the campaign.”

Organizers had planned to end the vigil with a five-mile march from Government Center, where they have been holding rallies, including a “climate twister” game and talking to the public about “climate silence.”

Meanwhile,

The Sentinels at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier maintain their vigil even as Hurricane Sandy bears down on the Eastern Seaboard. The Old Guard has guarded the tomb every minute of every day since April 6, 1948. Today will be no exception.

Some 200 people had participated in a round-the-clock vigil..

200 people? This is news? I have to think that the LSM would be harrumphing this if there were only 10 people.

Of the top 20 concerns of the electorate, climate flapdoodle is certainly well past 21.

By the way, hasn’t the National Weather Service called Sandy a “once in a 100 year storm?” As if to say, storms like this occur once in every 100 years? This is hardly unprecedented.

It’s Bush’s fault. It is a well known fact that hurricanes are proof of Global Climate Change.™

It’ll only be true schadenfreude when a storm surge swamps these idiots and takes them out to sea.

Yes Boston conservative talk host jokes about “Karl Rove running the Cheney-Halliburton Hurricane machine”...

So much for Obama’s promise about the end of rising sea levels...
I still remember one anti-global warming rally out in
Amherst MA that was curtailed due to...a snowstorm. In
mid March. Global...warming? As I like to say, bring it on,
I’d LOVE some!

They should tell the people in West Virginia how bad global warming is. WV has had snow falling continuously for three days now, over nearly the entire state.
