The US has been hit by 287 hurricanes since 1850, and the geniuses at the New York Times predict that Sandy will not be the last one.

The New York Times advocates invoking economy wrecking measures, in order to make the climate like it was in the year 1900.

15 Sep 1900 – The Texas Hurricane. OVER 2,000 CORPSES DISPOSED…

Or perhaps 1821

Experts say it’s only a matter of time before a major hurricane strikes New York City. When it comes, you may want to have your evacuation plan nearby. If not, meet the fishes.

In 1821, stunned colonial New Yorkers recorded sea levels rising as fast as 13 feet in a single hour at the Battery. The East River and Hudson Rivers merged over Lower Manhattan all the way to Canal Street. According to Coch, the fact that the 1821 storm struck at low tide “is the only thing that saved the city.”

    So to disprove AGW, all storms, droughts, floods and fires must cease?

      I’m not even sure that would do it. But, if it stays cold they will switch back to global cooling caused by (wait for it) – evil fossil fuels.

    I understand the angst against the NY Times and their consistent fear mongering: “Sandy cannot be considered a seasonal disaster or regional fluke but as yet another harbinger of the calamities that await in an era of climate change” and that the task force “identifies 11 climate-related disasters costing an estimated $110 billion in damages in the last year alone”. These are WEATHER disasters (There’s no such thing as a climate disaster)…and as long as populations continue to grow along the COAST, hurricanes will strike and cause more damage than they did before. As long as populations continue to grow into once untouched lands, fires will burn structures and cause more damage, and floods will take out homes. And as been demonstrated on this site, it has happened time and time again, no matter the level of CO2.
    However, I see no harm in their stance that buildings should be strengthened and codes should be enforced in order to ease the burden on insurance (of course the only one they mention is the national flood insurance subsidy), just like we should be responsible preserving our environment if the technology is there to do it. And if the infrastructure can be strengthened, then take care of it so that help can get where it needs to go.

    Monster Storm Sandy? Is that a downgrade . . . or upgrade . . . from Super Storm?

    They would better spend money on locks out by Verrazano Narrows and LI Sound, to stop storm surges coming into Manhattan. Than wrecking the whole US economy further than normal Obamalaise today.

    How many times do people have to be reminded that it was tropical storm Sandy that “hit the eastern seaboard”.
