If you thought this nation would see only one sharknado in your lifetime, you obviously have not been paying attention to either climate scientists or twitter. Experts at the SyFy channel say — with a certainty rarely found in year-ahead weather forecasts — that a tornado filled with sharks will hit Manhattan in 2014.
You may recall what Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York said when Superstorm Sandy followed so quickly after Superstorm Irene, “Climate change is real…. each of these situations is a once in a lifetime. There is a 100 year flood every two years now. It’s inarguable that the sea is warmer and that there is a changing weather pattern, and the time to act is now. ”
Imagine what Cuomo will say in 2014 after Manhattan is hit by only the second known sharknado. For those cave-dwelling climate preppers without cable, let me remind you how the media describes the first sharknado:
… the ecological nightmare caused by global warming triggers a freak weather system that results in a mega tornado choc-a-block with angry sharks who sail through the air attacking innocent children and blondes, and causing to be uttered such lines as “they took my grandfather, so I really hate sharks.”
As one renowned climatologist told me, “This is what climate change looks like … on TV.”
A leading climate denier said, “Alarmists blame every freak weather event on climate change. Now it’s sharknados, tomorrow it’ll be ElectricEel-icanes.”
Climate advocates immediately criticized New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for not including sharknados in his resiliency plan. This despite the fact that the city was terrorized by land sharks not that long ago.
