Andrea Mitchell: Storms Show U.S. Needs To Go It Alone If Necessary On Climate Change

Andrea Mitchell isn't about to let a good hurricane go to waste in her push for economy-wrecking climate change regulations.

On her MSNBC show today, Andrea Mitchell claimed that recent weather events including Superstorm Sandy have "taught us if nothing else, that we have a real climate problem and that we have to deal with this here even if the rest of the world isn't going to deal with it in China and elsewhere.View the video after the jump.

 



Note how Mitchell dances around the fact that their have been recent "fluctuations in temperature."  To a good climate-change alarmist, it doesn't matter.  High temps?  Global warming! Low temps?  Um, global warming too!  Who cares if China and other huge industrial powers like India don't want to wreck their economies by agreeing to greenhouse gas regulation? That shouldn't stop us from wrecking ours!

Mitchell was speaking with Lisa Murkowski, Republican senator from Alaska.

 

ANDREA MITCHELL: You are talking about drilling. When the President and certainly the incoming Secretary of State who has been a leader on climate change is talking about doing something about greenhouse gases, haven't the storms, Superstorm sandy, Irene last year, haven't all of these recent storms and the fluctuations in temperature taught us if nothing else, that we have a real climate problem and that we have to deal with this here even if the rest of the world isn't going to deal with it, in china and elsewhere?
