Bill de Blasio: Tropical Storm Isaias ‘Is the Result of Global Warming’
DE BLASIO: “Now, let's talk about the bigger reality. What we're seeing here and what we've been seeing now for years is the result of global warming. We've been seeing more and more pressure on coastal areas all around the world. Some of you may have been following the horrible flooding in Bangladesh right now. We have a big Bangladeshi community here in this city. We're seeing problems in cities all over the world because of global warming. This is not an abstraction."
