Rising tides and violent storms

At a news conference today in New York City with Governor Andrew Cuomo, fellow Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand blamed Washington for failing to make climate change a priority. Washington!

I had a feeling last year when Cuomo was speaking about weather-related events that he was going down the "Al Gore path." Al Gore may well be an unheralded genius who will be duly recognized by future generations, a Nikola Tesla of an earthkeeper.

At the same presser, Senator Charles Schumer said the nation must take the "bull by the horns" to reduce global warming and protect against rising tides and violent storms.

The storms are about to get more violent, weatherwise and otherwise... get a load of THIS:::

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
