It's not surprising that in the wake of Hurricane Sandy there has been contention over what role climate change played in the intensity of the storm.
"Eric Pooley, senior vice president of the Environmental Defense Fund offers this analogy, which looks to baseball for its inspiration.“We can’t say that steroids caused any one home run by Barry Bonds, but steroids sure helped him hit more and hit them farther.” So, we now have “weather on steroids.”
Good line. It is correct to say that Sandy was caused by AGW "systemically". That is, the cause is 'indirect'.
