Former vice president and climate change activist, Al Gore warned Tuesday that the storm that ravaged the East Coast Monday is “a disturbing sign of things to come. We must heed this warning and act quickly to solve the climate crisis. Dirty energy makes dirty weather," Gore wrote on his blog. Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" presentation included predictions of inundations to coastal and low-lying major cities, including Manhattan, due to climate change-induced sea level rise. "Scientists tell us that by continually dumping 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere every single day, we are altering the environment in which all storms develop," Gore wrote. "As the oceans and atmosphere continue to warm, storms are becoming more energetic and powerful."
