With media outlets across the country covering Hurricane Sandy around the clock, so far little correlation has been made to its relationship with climate change. In this Democracy Now! video Bill McKibben, co-founder and director of 350.org, and Greg Jones, climate scientist and professor of Environmental Studies at Southern Oregon University, help map out that connection and point out the sad irony of Governor Romney’s recent mocking President Obama’s initiative to stop sea level rise. McKibben claims that this may be the unfortunate “wake-up call” that will make Americans open their eyes to the reality of climate change and take action to stop this issue from worsening.
