Surprised? Some Climate Scientists Trying to Connect Hurricane Sandy With Global Warming

Oct 29, 2012 Full story: TheBlaze.com 156

Every time there's a massive weather event - like Hurricane Sandy affecting much of the East Coast early this week - climatologists are called upon to answer the question of whether this weather is evidence of global warming.

I agree with your first statement....the second one, however, is dubious. If more and larger storms, especially later in the season, are an effect of global warming then it could well be "one of the predicted effects."

It was a Cat 1 storm. They were lucky! It could've been so much worse. Quit crying!
People who depend so much on the government, take notice! When you need them most, they WILL NOT be there for you! But keep on voting for them and giving them power and more power. This is what you get.

It was a category 1 storm which clashed with one or two other weather systems and created extremely serious conditions over a verrrry wide area, unusually so.

The people affected weren't 'depending on the government,' just trying to live their lives. The government can and will help them, although it cannot do everything. Insurance companies, friends, neighbors, and the community have to step up, too.

Your vengeful extremism is distasteful and offensive.

This one was one of the latter, unfortunately...

No, it was a hurricane.


Despite Sandy only being a Category 1 hurricane, its Pressure level is 946 mb (27.94 inches) which is equal to a Category 3 storm.

I've lived in Florida for 35 years, 30 of those in South Florida. You are preaching to the choir when it comes to storms.
We go through it every year down here, often multiple times a year. Don't tell me they never heard once of our troubles with hurricanes. And somehow, being right on the Atlantic, they never expected it to happen to them. And now that it has happened to them, you'd think it never happened to anyone before!
They were told to get out. Down here we know, if you stay, expect to handle things on your own for weeks. When we get help, it's a neighbor with his chainsaw cutting up the trees blocking the road, it's me throwing a line to my neighbor because I have a generator and fuel to run it, its a bunch of us firing up our grills so we and others can eat. It's everyone helping each other out. By the time the government shows up, there's little need for them.
Again, they were LUCKY. They need to be thankful it wasn't worse. Maybe next time they're told a storm is coming, they may take more heed.

Sit back, keep the savings pot well topped up and try to prevent anybody stealing it or destroying the domicile.

Would recommend a move to a flood proof locale, and a healthy interest in keeping the robbers & slavers away from the governance.

Interesting to find that in the last 4 decades the bulk of thieves, robbers, slavers, and general organised criminals all aligned themselves with "God". Appears to be a natural progression from the days of snake oil sellers & manic street preaching cultists with a control freaky pyramid mentality typical of the pre civil war days of ancient USA, but with an addition of manic imports from overseas versions of same cultists and a few followers of inventions initially done for a joke by storytellers (everyting from Star wars to Scientologists)!
Thus far...(as am typing out), no word at all from "God" on approval or disapproval of current move by general criminal subset to align themselves with clergy of any description (or invent their own from cobbled together bits & pieces of others.

As it goes currently regarding "God" as having left current dot on map in a galaxy far far away...(hmm? something like that but without the hum and bits dropping off), leaving current poulation of said dot to manage without deity intervention. Outcome works rather well but requires IQ something above 90 to do relatively well, and also needs an absence of organised criminal overload that requres a pool of exploitable destitutes.

Also noticed that in many cases same organised criminal subset tend to exploit destitutes created by natural disaster(s), results of current may be of great interest to those looking @ USA constitution. Prior republican constitution failed in that respect big time hence its current loss of vote.

That should do as a decent reply.

Have a nice day: Ag

Thanks for the pressure info.

That result made it rather bigger & deeper then the "Burns day storm" of early 1989 of the UK. lack of windspeed was probaby due to its large size with @ that time the bands becoming tubulent rather than classic ring "stadium effect" format typical of lower tropics.
This would put it on a par with Hurricane "Bertha" which hit the Carolinas when on the wind down from a Cat 5, when it had presented as compact & "Bijou", and transformed to the eventual landfall as a loose incurving ring of supercells and associated spiral arms.

Hurricane "Bertha" also made a bit of a mess @ landfall but being earlier in the season it did not snow inland.

The temperature contrast due to the track and lateness appears to have assisted with the extratropical growth.

Have a nice day: Ag
