EPA Chief McCarthy blames Boston’s ‘worst winter ever’ on global warming – Suggests EPA regs will prevent future massive snowfalls

Published on Sep 8, 2015

Speaking before the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy says that ‘we have to get busy on climate change’ because Boston just experienced ‘like the worst winter ever.’

ADMINISTRATOR MCCARTHY: “So one of the new strategic priorities is climate change mitigation and adaptation, and it’s a good thing. It’s a long time coming, and we are very excited about it. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but I’m most importantly excited about it because this city just a short time ago was buried in snow for far too long. It was like the worst winter ever. So, you have to help me. We have to get busy on climate change because if it gets any worse our cars will be buried for months on end, and our subway system will never work, and I’ll have to hang out with my adult children far too often and for far too long in confined spaces. So, there is a reason we need to move forward.”
