"Global warming, you can run, but you can't hide!" 10 September, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000179

The scene shows President Bush of the United States, standing beneath dark skies on a small mound surrounded by fetid water, a floating body and a rescue boat. He is in New Orleans, or one of the places worst affected by Hurricane Katrina, and is pronouncing in his familiar way that global warming, like Al Qaida, terrorism in general, and the war in Iraq, can run but not hide. He appears to be supremely confident that he will beat all these problems if he just keeps at it. Global warming is probably responsible for the greater frequency and severity of hurricanes and tornadoes being experienced recently.
