Clinton’s Reply to Romney’s Climate Ridicule

Mitt Romney stated during his acceptance speech at the National Republican Convention,

“President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. My promise…is to help you and your family.”

Here is the short video:

On October 30, 2012 after Hurricane Sandy President Clinton gave a speech, in which he responded:

“I was actually listening closely to what the candidates said in these debates. In the first debate, the triumph of the moderate Mitt Romney. You remember what he did? He ridiculed the President. Ridiculed the President for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial ways. He said ‘Oh, you’re going to turn back the seas.’ In my part of America, we would like it if someone could’ve done that yesterday. All up and down the East Coast, there are mayors, many of them Republicans, who are being told, ‘You’ve got to move these houses back away from the ocean. You’ve got to lift them up. Climate change is going to raise the water levels on a permanent basis. If you want your town insured, you have to do this.’ In the real world, Barack Obama’s policies work better.”
