As I noted on Twitter Wednesday night when I watched it live on the O’Reilly Factor on the Fox News Channel, Heartland friend Joe Bastardi slammed Al Gore over his comments that man-caused global warming were to blame for Hurricane Sandy hitting New Jersey and New York. Joe called Gore either “stunningly ignorant or stunningly deceptive” in his remarks about Sandy. More from Joe:
He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. And ever since he shot his mouth off about Katrina, we’ve seen total global tropical activity go to record low levels. Just because something happens in your backyard two years in a row, it has nothing to do with the total picture.
