Thanks to Michael Moore for the video!
Michael Moore discussed Hurricane Sandy with Piers Morgan as a special guest on Wednesday evening; the devastation, the fatalities, the current conditions in New York City, people with no power, limited transportation, the recovery, and what led to the super storm in the first place.
At one point, Piers Morgan is speaking to Alan Aviles, the President of NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation. Morgan called it "shameful" that two of NYC's major hospitals suffered complete power outages, while Mr. Aviles attempted to explain that even at the peak of the storm, there was no suggestion that the hospitals would become endangered.
Moore: "Nobody has experienced this, as he(Aviles) said before. But this is -- what I want to point out that you say it unprecedented. It may be unprecedented, but -- when he says it is unprecedented, but it is going to set the precedent because this is what we are going to see from here on out. Unless we're will to talk -- and you said you want to talk about this later, climate change and global warming -- that is what has changed here."
"This is not going to be a freak incident, what happened here in New York and New Jersey this week. We have been seeing crazy weather for the last few years, the drought that took place this summer, this..."
Morgan: " I heard Michael Bloomberg saying the same thing, that he in all his time in New York had never known a more unstable year for weather. And he believed very firmly it is about global warming. Not enough is being done about this and it will get worse. What do you think?"
MOORE: "I think it already has gotten worse. I think we are way down the road here. We are -- we are in big trouble. And we're still having a debate in Congress as to whether or not there really is global warming. This is -- this is -- I'm -- the people, and it's the majority of Americans -- the majority of Americans believe that we've got a climate problem. And the majority of Americans believe in science."
"We've allowed the ignoramuses to run the show on this. And this storm should really put an end to that."
