Excerpt: [New York City Mayor Michael] Bloomberg endorsed Obama in an op-ed yesterday, arguing that Hurricane Sandy and other extreme weather events may not be directly caused by climate change, but that the risk that they are requires action by elected officials. Republican nominee Mitt Romney has backed off his previous pledges to act on climate change, Bloomberg said, making Obama the preferred choice.

“This issue is too important,” he said. “We need determined leadership at the national level to move the nation and the world forward.”

Marc Morano, publisher of the climate skeptic blog Climate Depot, accused Bloomberg of betraying those harmed by Sandy.

“Bloomberg is insulting every victim of Sandy by implying the federal government can legislate the behavior of storms and weather,” he said in an email.

A spokesman for Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Congress’ leading critic of climate science, panned Bloomberg’s endorsement, saying Obama has failed to advance climate policy and has run the “global warming alarmist” movement into the ground.

“In fact, President Obama hardly even talks about global warming as he runs for reelection. Rather, he has been talking about his new found love of fossil fuels,” spokesman Matt Dempsey said by email.
