Global Warming Emergency?

The ever-vigilent Matt Drudge notes a recent interview where Barbra Streisand declared a "global warming emergency". She makes an interesting point, as we have seen two very strong storms hit the United States within a month...

until you learn the following fact.
At 18, Streisand read news about "Donna" AND "Ethel" -- both storms carried 140 mph winds and formed 9 days apart in 1960!
1960? Maybe then was a fluke, right?
One year later, when Streisand was 19, it happened again: Two Category 5 storms scared the world: "Carla" and "Hattie!"
My my, a Hollywood elitist unaware of past events, who would have ever imagined?

Which brings up my ultimate questions: why does the media care so much about the meaningless and uninformed rants of celebrities, and since when did Barbra Streisand have the authority to declare a "global...emergency"?
