    For those "the sky is falling" Al Gore fans.

     

    Sandy was the largest diameter storm, so far. But that's the only record it broke (but not by much).

    Google: List of Atlantic hurricane records

    Things like this has happened before. And it will happen again.

    Wasn't the Al Gore crowd predicting more and stronger hurricanes. How many hurricanes did we have this year? How strong were they? Bit Al's wrong again.

    • It's hard to explain things to you Donny boy since you are willfully obtuse but here goes. Do the words climate change mean anything to you?? How often do New York and New Jersey get hit by a hurricane?? This storm caused the most damage in history. Does any of this penetrate your pea brain??

      • At a recent gathering of sea-ice experts at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, Hajo Eicken, a geophysicist, summarized it this way: “Our stock in trade seems to be going away.”

        Scientists are also unnerved by the summer’s implications for the future, and their ability to predict it.

        Complicating the picture, the striking Arctic change was as much a result of ice moving as melting, many say. A new study, led by Son Nghiem at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and appearing this week in Geophysical Research Letters, used satellites and buoys to show that winds since 2000 had pushed huge amounts of thick old ice out of the Arctic basin past Greenland. The thin floes that formed on the resulting open water melted quicker or could be shuffled together by winds and similarly expelled, the authors said.

        The pace of change has far exceeded what had been estimated by almost all the simulations used to envision how the Arctic will respond to rising concentrations of greenhouse gases linked to global warming. But that disconnect can cut two ways. Are the models overly conservative? Or are they missing natural influences that can cause wide swings in ice and temperature, thereby dwarfing the slow background warming?

      • Have you heard Rand Paul- accidents do happen like the gulf oil spill. They are part of climate and not man made!

      • How do you intend to get the rest of the world to comply? They are not going to, I'll tell you that. So, whats your plan, war?

      • The 1903 New Jersey hurricane, also known as the Vagabond Hurricane by The Press of Atlantic City, is the most recent North Atlantic hurricane to make first landfall in the state of New Jersey. The fourth hurricane of the season, the cyclone was first observed on September 12 about 550 miles (885 km) northeast of Antigua. It moved quickly westward, then later turned to the north-northwest, steadily strengthening to reach a peak intensity of 100 mph (155 km/h). The hurricane weakened slightly before striking near Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 16 with winds of 80 mph (130 km/h).

    • I think you win the award for the dumbest person on this board. Congratulations. Typical ideological idiot. Talking about complex scientific phenomenon out of you as..s. Rather than posting such stupid nonsense on a message board all day long, why don't you take one climate course at a college of your choice, then report back on how stupid you are. Then spend the rest of worthless life telling everyone how much you learned, how stupid you were and beg for forgiveness.
