An Inconvenient Truth: Al Gore prediction was right about Global Warming and NYC flooding
New York City’s infrastructure was designed in large part to avoid the devastation of the Great Blizzard of 1888. Back before then the City’s trains were elevated trains which in the blizzard got clogged up with snow and became unusable for days. Many people got stranded on the trains and froze to death buried in 50 foot snow drifts. The City was never designed for weather like this because it was not subject to weather like we saw during Sandy.
If you are a New Yorker you have been noticing the weather change for a decade now.
When Sandy hit it hit a City designed for weather conditions as they existed a 100 years or so ago. Now it seems the City is confronted with the very real Man Made Global Climate change where areas Al Gore’s movie predicted would be threatened are indeed where the most flood damage was done.
The clip that mentions Manhattan is at 1:30.
The part of Manhattan that has no power from the flooding now matches the Al Gore prediction.
