Storyline

Occupy SandyThe author of Gasland and The Sky is Pink made one little documentary concerned with the people affected by the Hurricane Sandy.

Occupy Sandy is a coordinated relief effort to distribute resources and volunteers to help neighborhoods and people affected by Hurricane Sandy.

How unfair it is to sort of name these hurricanes after a harmless girls. Every girl named Sandy in the New York Metropolitan area is going to spend the next 10 years hearing bad jokes. It is time to name them for the people who are causing them.

We should go right through the alphabet finding every oil, coal and gas company because these guys are pouring carbon into the atmosphere that is supercharging these hurricanes.

Sandy was the lowest barometric pressure ever recorded north of Cape Paterson. Its winds stretched further than any storm that we ever measured. We should call it what it is: Hurricane Exxon. That way the stories in the news would sound just right.

    The music was an immediate turn off,...I love documentaries but cannot stand when they are overpowered by dumb music.

    If you ask politicians to solve this for you, their answer will be to put you in chains. You will not realize what you have done until it's too late.

      2012 was also acknowledged by NOAA as the 10th hottest year on their records.

      What if (and I believed Inconvenient Truth completely) the warming came BEFORE the carbon increase and the warming itself came from GeoEngineering?

    Watch it share it and then change it ....

    It was quite "sandy" everywhere afterwards.
    The doc shows how people can pull together when the shite hit us.
    Global warming? hard to believe it's not happening...just watch your garbage bags and your neighbour's go, weeks after weeks after weeks...and that is a very very minuscule part of the problem.

      Good can come out of bad, alright. After the hurricane, my wife and I had our little grandbabies over here with us for nearly a week. :) Our street was one of the very few in town to keep power.

    Good, this shows the value of a movement (Occupy) who's value was doubted but that has stepped into the vacuum following Hurricane Sandy. Thank you Occupy volunteers.

  11. KsDevil

    The heads of government agencies and the resources they associate with have a vested interest in down playing Operation Sandy.

  12. christophers

    Jesus Christ,if your too stupid to look at satellite imagery and see the cloud seeding going on with this storm,then this doc ifs perfect for you. That is even adding scalar weaponry and HAARP technology....,

      I bet you think the twin towers was an inside job!Stop with the meth and get some mental health help before you strap a bomb to your back.

  13. mattvins

    lol, reading the description, it sounds like this doc was made by a 12 year old girl called Sandy.
