Al Gore should pay for it himsel;f - he is the buffoon who started the "Sea is Rising!!" scare. There is NO evidence of it at all. But a storm protection scheme is a good idea.

all Bloom has to do is ban storms in NYC. Michael Moishe Bloomberg. But that would knock a lot of working people out of a job and cause tax revenue to go down. forget it. build the potties. Or is it porties. whatever.

13:12 He it is Who shows you the lightning causing fear and hope and (Who) brings up the heavy cloud.

13:13 And the thunder celebrates His praise, and the angels too for awe of Him. And He sends the thunderbolts and smites with them whom He pleases, yet they dispute concerning Allah, and He is Mighty in prowess.
