Storm revives issue of climate change | chinadaily.com.cn
Damon Moglen, who heads the climate and energy program at the Washington-based Friends of the Earth, said the superstorm boosted Obama's standing and could have helped him to win.
"The president deserves very severe criticism for his unwillingness to talk in a more serious way about climate change," said Moglen. Hurricane Sandy, he added, "turned the corner on the ridiculous debate in this country" about whether climate change is real.
"Obama stands on the brink of history - either he is going to change the trajectory of American policy on climate change or he is going to go down in history as the president who failed to listen to the winds of Sandy," Moglen said.
