Re: “Hurricane Sandy and climate change: It's complicated

Each of the three components of this storm can be associated with warming of the atmosphere:
1) warm ocean water feeds main storm
2) the cold arctic storm is the result of jet stream bounce from equatorial warming pushing jet stream air north where it gathers moisture and then bounces back down as a wet storm
3) the high press sure zone pushing the storm to land is the result of unseasonably warm air in the north.
What more do you need to know? Think of the equator as the center of a pot of water with a flame heating it up. The water starts to move. Then add the spin of the earth to create the jet stream and yes, we can expect this to get much worse!
