1. I was thinking more along the lines of The History Channel's "Life After People"

 

...which highlighted New York City in a hypothetical post-human future.

ETA among other things I hadn't known before watching that series, I learned that the NYC subway system has to be pumped constantly to keep the tunnels dry.

2. Too bad most people laughed at him and called him crazy

He knew what was coming and tried to warn us, but noooo. Global warming and climate change are so foolish. These weather events are much more likely to be signs from God that gays and abortions are baaaaad, right?

due to theft and the loss to the whole world, especially those who live on islands and people who will starve, for the Republicans to win..

3. Sandy is the catalyst to bring attention back to Climate Change

We must act on that after Obama is reelected!

15. WVA, NC & VA mountains getting snow...

I'm more east toward the coast--we're getting steady cold rain (40 degrees!) but not much wind. Instant plunge into winter! In my nest and keeping my feathers warm and dry. Have heard that there's a big mess out on NC's Outer Banks again--they haven't even recovered from Irene last year which was terrible. Sad. I like to go there in summer. I have family up the east coast of VA and up near coastal MD. They're getting effects now. So far haven't lost touch with my sister. I'm supposed to go to DC next week...(!?!) dunno.

Thanks for askin'.

Hottest, driest, nastiest in years.

Global warming? Couldn't be...

6. Al Gore was right about global climate change

One of the horrible ironies about how politicians have treated global climate change -- the oil industry and GOP deniers being so loud and obnoxious that it has become toxic for Democrats to even mention the subject -- the horrible irony, as I said, is that the Pentagon knows damn well it it happening, and so do civil engineers. As a consequence, some preparation has been made for the coming disasters and displacements, but almost nothing is being done, or can be done on a big enough scale, to prevent it.

7. Al Gore .....

When I think of the potential good that was stolen from this nation in 2000, I feel ill. And I'm not pretending that VP Gore was somehow perfect, but he sure as heck has dedicated much of his career in his mature years to educating and inspiring people.

Meanwhile, the Bush and Reagan wastes of oxygen clear shrubs on their ranches and build monuments to themselves.

14. and Clinton

seriously wonder what dubya does all day, has anyone seen or heard a word out of him during this election? It's like he's under house arrest, seriously, the press knows where he lives, can't imagine they aren't watching to see if he ever leaves his place, so WTF is he up to? No wonder the threat of Jeb never happened. Dad wasn't too bright himself, literally incapable of "conversation".

23. CBS Sunday Morning just had a whole litany of things that Pres. Clinton

has done since he left office. He has done more out of office than any other president, including President Carter. Go look it up for yourself.

17. I know we having a bit of fun

but I hope the people of the East Coast don't find it offensive. I truly am worried about you (my sister-in-law and her family are in Philadelphia). You are in my thoughts and prayers as is the rest of the DU community.

21. I am fine here in western MI.

My sister lives in the Catskills. She lost the windshield in her car tonight and damage to her roof. We've been texting back and forth all evening.

I sent her links to Obama kids photos and the thread earlier this evening of a cat and deer loving one another.

I haven't heard from for a bit, but I am sure she's okay.

20. He Also Wanted To Use The Surpluses To Shore Up Social Security and Medicare

and the MSM pundits laughed at him and ridiculed him.

An Al Gore presidency would have put us on a much brighter path towards tomorrow, and that's why they had to cheat him.
