Had Mayor Bloomberg spent as much time preparing for a massive snowfall, as he did promoting the construction of the Ground Zero Mosque, New Yorkers might have been able to get to work, receive emergency help and be able to walk down the street without injury. But the Mayor who spent the summer lecturing us on everything from the salt content of our food to the evils of Islamophobia–ignored the one thing he should have actually been preparing for. Winter.

It’s possible that Bloomberg’s ideology fooled him into thinking that winter just wasn’t coming this year. Back in 2008, he had compared Global Warming to the threat of terrorism, and focused the city’s resources on buying into the eco-scam. Last winter, in response to his special Global Warming panel’s alarmist claims of coastal flooding and higher temperatures in the city by 2080, the Mayor said, “We cannot wait until after our infrastructure has been compromised to begin to plan for the effects of climate change now.”

And so last winter, instead of planning for the next winter, Bloomy began planning for the apocalyptic New York City of 2080, where everyone has to live on melted ice floes and battle for parking spots with marauding polar bears.
