Oliver Stone Blasts Obama And Romney Over Climate Change After Sandy!

Hurricane Sandy was brutal, and our hearts go out to those that lost their homes, towns, and unfortunately — family members. Many things should come from this, including people beginning to take future warnings seriously, better preparation, and hopefully we'll be seeing the aftermath support and clean-up meet the challenge.

Director Oliver Stone wants something else to come from it too. He wants President Obama and Mitt Romney to stop ignoring the problems and turn their stances around on climate change to face it head on.

Here's what he said:

"I was a little disappointed at the third debate when neither of them talked about climate control and the nature of the situation on earth. I think there's a kind of a weird statement coming right after it. This is a punishment. Mother Nature cannot be ignored. That's all I thought about. The storm will pass. The campaign will pass. But unfortunately the nature of this present world situation will not."

We agree that regardless of stance, this is something that should be discussed. Unfortunately we think it's probably too late to include it in the election discussion, when it should have been talked about all along.

Also, when it comes to climate change, it shouldn't matter who is right or wrong if it results in looking into alternative and renewable energy sources. Even if somehow tons of scientists are wrong about how we're negatively effecting our planet's climate, wouldn't you want to take care of the Earth anyway?

It might be nice to live somewhere cleaner! Ha!

    Romney doesn't believe in any climate changes , he wants to get rid of FIMA. As long the very Rich get their fair share, he is fine. On the contrary President Obama is investing a lot of money in anything invention or any future jobs called ' Green ' > You guys do the math !

    Re: DSummerfan – It's called FEMA, and it's a mischaracterization to say he wants to eliminate it even if you are referring to remarks made 1.5 years ago.

    Re: DSummerfan – He can talk all he wants about green jobs, but as a 60 year old female with arthritis I somehow do not see myself installing solar panels!

    My job of 24 years was sent to China and I had to train my replacement or not get a package, so not voting for Obama, sorry dude. His time has come and gone, time for this failed experiment to prove how colorblind we Americans are to end.

    While global warming does exist. The libs are wrong as shit too on it. It's a naturally occurring thing that happens every few million years. It's happened before, going green and doing all of this crap will just delay it by a couple hundred years. Which is irrelevant. It gets warmer, things melt, some species die off, whatever survives moves on. Simple as that.

    Al Gore talked about New York, at least part of it, going under water years ago in AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH (which won the Oscar for Best Documentary) because of Global Warming. Nobody listened then. Hopefully they will now. If they had listened they would have built up a Sea Wall to withstand Superstorm Sandy. And if they're really smart people should never rebuild so close to the ocean again. The insurance companies should threaten wihholding insurance to anyone who builds near the ocean again. Off course you never hear about solutions in the media or enough about Global Warming.

    My family has lived in NJ since they arrived here on a boat through Ellis Island. They all grew up in Newark and spent their summers in Long Branch, Asbury Park, or Seaside. Both of my grandparents say to this day that in the 1950s, there were a string of hurricanes to strike the East Coast and devastate the Jersey Shore and whole area. The last storm that was as damaging as Sandy to the Jersey Shore was 1962. After that, hurricanes were rare, apparently until last year. They also say that during that same decade, snowstorms were rampant in the winters, then in the 60s and 70s that, too, died down to milder winters. It's happening again, people. Weather cycles, they happen and are never ending. It's not global warming. This has been happening since the beginning of time. The Earth changes.

    The scientists' concensus is in. Global Warming exists, alive & kicking. You can just listen to the metereologists explain this type of superstorm has never been seen before, the meeting of cool, & warm, veering sharply to the left onto land, & not dissipating over the ocean. And two hurricanes (Irene) within a year! Greenland's polar ice has melted. We must change our energy habits, & go renewable big time, better for our economy (more jobs) as well as the environment, & making us more self sufficient not reliant on foreign oil from non democratic countries.
