Obama warns of 'devastating' hurricanes from climate change

By Laura Barron-Lopez - 05/30/14 03:54 PM EDT

President Obama warned Friday that storms like Hurricane Sandy will become more frequent as climate change intensifies.

While being briefed by emergency response officials at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) headquarters, Obama urged the public to prepare now for this year's hurricane season.

"The changes we’re seeing in our climate means that, unfortunately, storms like Sandy could end up being more common and more devastating," Obama said.

"And that’s why we’re also going to be doing more to deal with the dangers of carbon pollution that help to cause this climate change and global warming. And that’s why we’re also, with the terrific help of these departments, thinking of how we can build more resilient infrastructure," he added.

The administration is preparing to unveil Obama's signature climate change regulation Monday, which will limit carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants.

After leaving FEMA headquarters, Obama visited the Children's National Medical Center, according to a White House pool report.

There Obama met with children who are being treated for asthma, an illness aggravated by air pollution, a White House official said.

Obama is at the hospital to tape his weekly address, which will focus on the forthcoming carbon pollution rule.

Yeah, and I could become Bill Gates overnight by using this one weird trick.  Sorry, Zero, that tune has been played.

And here is the great head fake--conflate anti-pollution measures (a good thing when they aren't used as a club to bludgeon opponents of socialism) with anti-carbon, economy killing regulations.  Sadly, too many people will fall for it.
