According to published reports, New Orleans Recovery Czar Dr. Ed Blakely believes the destruction of The Big Easy was a “natural event” and the result of Global Warming.

Below are some excerpts from the story about a speech Blakely made to a group in Philadelphia Sunday.

Blakely also spoke at length about the effects of global warming on populated areas.

New Orleans, Blakely said, “is the first major American city that’s been almost totally destroyed by the natural event. This is something we should anticipate happening elsewhere.”

Prior to this revelation, all the scientific studies by public and private groups concluded that the negligence and incompetence of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in designing the flood protection system was to blame for the flooding of 80% of the city following Hurrican Katrina.

As with most of Dr. Blakely’s pronouncements, the media has a difficult time in quoting him accurately or keeping his comments in context. Therefore, until we hear Dr. Blakely’s explanation, I will reserve judgment.
