Too strong a word mate.

Even I don't think it is all Climate Change, but it IS more than the global rise as the research shows.


Yes, I agree that a small portion, I think small enough to be insignificant, of Sandy's flooding was caused by climate change. The people who are lying, and there are many of those in the media, are those who would have us believe that the whole Sandy disaster was a symptom of climate change.

Lower Manhattan was not flooded because of climate change. It was flooded by an extraordinary storm that coincided with extraordinary tides. The effect was SLIGHTLY worse due to climate driven ocean level rise.
