On Hurricane Sandy...

This is an excellent metaphor for Hurricane Sandy and global climate change, the best I've heard so far:

"Eric Pooley, senior vice president of the Environmental Defense Fund (and former deputy editor of Bloomberg Businessweek), offers a baseball analogy: “We can’t say that steroids caused any one home run by Barry Bonds, but steroids sure helped him hit more and hit them farther. Now we have weather on steroids.”

Very well stated, indeed. Source

My thoughts are with the victims, human, plant and wildlife affected.
