We Have a 'Winner'! Sandy Blamed on Global Warming
Yesterday, I asked this question:
Turns out I wasn't even close. It has already been blamed. From the Huffington Post:
Politico asked on Wednesday if perhaps Hurricane Sandy would be "the next climate wake-up call" as climate change will cause storms to become increasingly intense. As for this storm, the potential timing with Election Day led ClimateSilence.org's Brad Johnson to remark, “Sandy is yet another reminder that the candidates should stop competing over who can poison the weather faster with increased oil, gas and coal production."
So, I guess every hurricane is now due to global warming.
