Climate Protester Interrupts Romney Sandy Speech

- Common Dreams staff

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was interrupted at a campaign rally in Doswell, Va., Thursday, as he gave a speech on Hurricane Sandy, when a climate change protester revealed himself in the front row, shouting: "What about climate? That's what caused this monster storm. Climate Change!"

As the protester raised a banner reading "End Climate Silence" Romney remained silent, staring blankly ahead, maintaining his refusal to discuss global warming despite the climate change induced disaster Hurricane Sandy.

The protester was quickly escorted out of the rally while the crowd of Romney supporters chanted: "USA! USA!"

Romney then continued on with his speech without acknowledging the event.
