Seth Meyers on the Steroid Era of storms

Seth Meyers just nails it with regards to Hurricane Sandy, albeit in front of an empty studio — what with the superstorm, and all. Here’s the full quote:

None of the debates did they mention climate change. And I feel like every six months the worst thing that’s ever happend in the world happens weather-wise. And I feel like we’re going to look back on this time the way baseball fans in the 90s were like “No, nobody’s using steroids.”

We are in the Steroid Era of storms and yet there are more people in Congress who probably think this is because, like, gays are marrying… Than the fact that the world is just dying.

Read more on Sandy & climate change at SciAm and the NYT.

This is a show Josh Androsky and I are putting on to help pay for the legal defense of two kids who are imprisoned for refusing to testify during a grand jury. The two were accused of committing vandalism during protests in Seattle. However due to the Freedom of Information Act the they discovered the summons for the grand jury was written up 2 months prior to the supposed crime.  An individual can not plead the 5th in a grand jury and thus be charged with contempt and be held in prison. It is well documented that the FBI uses these grand jury’s to fish for information and intimdate younger activists in giving out information. It’s a very F’d situation and we go into detail about it on tomorrow’s Conversations With Matt Dwyer. I hope you listen and I hope you support the benefit we are putting on to raise awareness and to help the legal defense team. 
 Thank you.
PS i wrote this in a very tired state of mind and hope it wasn’t too clunky. Thank you again.
