Leading American meteorologist rejects Sandy/climate link.
Leading American meteorologist Tim Kelley of WLNE TV in Providence Rhone Island says "Sandy is not an unprecedented storm. The 1938 hurricane was worse, and was followed by major hurricanes in 1944 and 1954. Three hurricanes in 16 years. we are fortunate to have gone nearly 60 years without a comparable storm here in the northeast. The alarm and fear of antropogenic global warming is a major distraction and a waste of resources that could otherwise go to helping humanity. We should be adapting to climate change not trying to change climate. Increasing evidence from around the world shows that the main driver of terrestrial climate is the sun. The data shows no correlation at all between antropogenic CO2 emissions and climate change."
