Bloomberg: NYC Faces Cataclysmic Doom

Posted by Dave Blount at February 18, 2009 10:24 AM

As if killer bees and Y2K weren't bad enough, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is now screeching that his city will soon be underwater due to the imaginary global warming crisis:

Water levels around New York City could rise by 2 feet or more in the coming decades and average temperatures will likely go up 4 to 7.5 degrees, according to a report released today by a panel of scientists convened by Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The city must adapt to global warming or risk having to rebuild facilities after flooding, Bloomberg said in releasing the report by the New York City Panel on Climate Change. …
The New York City report, which was funded by a $350,000 grant from the [left-wing] Rockefeller Foundation, predicts that sea levels will rise by 12 to 23 inches and possibly more by the end of the century. Accelerated ice melt in Greenland and Antarctica could mean that sea levels will rise as much as 41 to 55 inches, the report says.

Let me guess: this disaster can only be forestalled through yet higher taxes and still more suffocating regulations, which coincidentally benefit no one but authoritarian bureauweenies like Michael Bloomberg.

Note to Bloomie: Hollyweird crapola is not real.
