Obama claims fish swim in Miami streets because of global warming

 Obama made the claim that fish swim in Miami streets because of global warming.  He made the claim at a press conference in France while attending the latest global warming summit.

But it’s difficult. And so I think that as the science around climate change is more accepted, as people start realizing that even today you can put a price on the damage that climate change is doing -- you go down to Miami, and when it’s flooding at high tide on a sunny day and fish are swimming through the middle of the streets, there’s a cost to that. Insurance companies already are beginning to realize that in terms of how they price risk. And the more the market on its own starts putting a price on it because of risk, it may be that the politics around setting up a cap-and-trade system, for example, shifts as well.

I'm going to be curious if this makes it to DRUDGE.  It's already made it to James Taranto's Best of the Web in the Wall Street Journal.  Taranto notes that:    
The fish story is not the only bizarre assertion to come from the president during the “climate change” conference in Paris. Yesterday he opened a speech at the gathering by suggesting the powwow itself was a way of fighting terrorism.
