CO2 Steered Sandy To New Jersey

Experts argue global warming’s impact on Sandy’s unusual path to N.J.

It wasn’t supposed to happen. That’s what the weather experts kept saying immediately before, during and after Sandy smacked New Jersey in the face. Not this far north, they said, not in autumn, and certainly not this bad.

New Jersey was hit by a category 2 hurricane in October, 1878

Which is why the global warming finger-pointing that usually begins after a natural disaster, preceded this one. But six weeks before Sandy was even a specter threatening the Caribbean, Rutgers scientist Jennifer Francis — not your normal climate change Cassandra — issued a warning during a teleconference call on global warming.

The melting ice caps, she said, appeared to be tied to recent extreme weather events, especially those occurring in the fall.

Antarctic ice set a record high this autumn – the most sea ice ever measured at either pole.

“It’s probably going to be a very interesting winter,” she said.

I predict that there will be cold, snow and storms this winter, with lots of climate destroying Christmas lights.

    The world is sooooooooooo frightening if you only consider what happened in your own lifespan.

    Likewise, mankind’s footprint on the environment seems soooooooo huge and evil and devastating, but only if you’ve never studied history or geology.

    Get over it. Earth is just not that into people and their silly little games

  2. I’ve been following this topic on a daily basis from circa 2007. Started off as a believer (no knowledge of the subject) to a strong sceptical position, then I read and studied it more and adopted a luke warmer middle of the road position. Now, however, the extreme weather/dirty weather meme has revealed those who have become self deluded on this topic. I’ve lost all confidence in the scientists who have heavily promoted the Warmist cause. I know it’s crap. They know (but would never publicly admit) it’s crap. But it’s all in the service of the noble cause, so promoting this nonsense is fine…

    U.S. Storm Costs 200 Lives
    NEW YORK. Nov. 27.
    Deaths reported in the US as a direct result of the hurricane total more than 200, with many persons missing.
    It was estimated that 120 homes were washed away during the height of the storm in an 18-mile stretch of the New Jersey coast.”

    Which just proves we need more CO2, not less.

  5. Billy Liar says:

    Warmists are so naive. They are the people who are condemned to re-live history because they failed to study it.

    When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual.

    George Santayana
