RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): NBC's Ron Allen thinks climate deal is designed to stop storms like Hurricane Matthew. These are acts of God. Do you have an insurance policy on your home or anything? You know the force majeure, the “act of God,” which is events that you can’t control, that man has no say-so over? Hurricane is one of those, but I guess the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is going to steal the purview of hurricanes away from God. And next we’re going to go on, we’re going to stop war with climate -- Look, the long way around telling you that there is politics in everything. There’s politics in the weather. There’s politics in the forecasting of the weather. There’s politics in hurricanes. There’s politics in the forecasting of hurricanes because there are votes.
