Was Superstorm Sandy a Result of Climate Change?


Climate One asks NASA scientist and climate advocate James Hansen whether there are human fingerprints on Superstorm Sandy in which Hansen responds that there are multiple areas which can be attributed to human influence. "We're getting [extreme weather events] much more frequently. ... The climate dice are now loaded, and they are loaded in such a way that not only do we get more unusually warm seasons, but those which are more extreme are much more frequent than they used to be."
