Buffalo City Council President Claims ‘Global Warming’ to Blame for Historic Blizzard

Darius Pridgen, President of the Buffalo City Council, reportedly told MSNBC on Thursday that he believes global warming is to blame for the fatal snowstorm that hit the city over Christmas.

Pridgen refused to condemn Buffalo Mayor Bryon Brown during an appearance with MSNBC for the city’s reaction to a major winter blizzard that has claimed the lives of at least 28 people.

He went on to say that he believes global warming is true and that dealing with changing weather demands different equipment.

As the weather deteriorated, some residents were stranded inside their automobiles for more than two days, prompting Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul to declare the city a disaster zone.

“I believe global warming is real. I believe that the patterns are changing. And we do have to have different equipment than we’ve ever had to have.” Pridgen said.

While attempting to assist individuals in need, many emergency vehicles themselves became stuck in the snow adding to the chaos.

Pridgen told MSNBC that the city sent warnings to residents to stay at home in the days leading up to and during the snowfall.

So far at least 40 people have been confirmed dead from the storm in Erie County.
