Superstorm Sandy Catapults Climate Change into the National Conversation

The power of hurricane Sandy and it's severe impact on life and property in the northeastern population centers including New York City has brought at least a temporary end to the silence on the topic of climate change.  The evidence of the vulnerability of our technology and infrastructure in the face of Hurricane Sandy has catalyzed articles in several mainstream media outlets.  Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine's cover article, "It's Global Warming, Stupid," perhaps sums up the challenging tone of the articles.  Below are a sampling of the articles discussing climate change for your reference: Bloomberg BusinessWeek:  "It's Global Warming, Stupid!"

Chicago Tribune:  "Hurricane Sandy and the Living Planet"

Washington Post:  "Don't look now, but that hoax just ate New Jersey"
