Hurricane Sandy has been described as the spawn of climate change, because scientists say such storms are getting more violent because of man-made global warming. The costs of destruction from storms on the North American continent are accelerating. From an average of $9 billion a year in the 1980s, to $36 billion a year in the 2000s. Climate change was not on the politicians’ radar in this election, until Sandy showed up, and did $50 billion damage on the East Coast. Some Republicans say Sandy changed the election, when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced Obama as they toured the destruction on Jersey Shore. Some Democrats say Sandy changed the political agenda in this country, because climate change can no longer be ignored.
