A Tale of Two Hurricanes….Sandy and Katrina

As the country watches the news coverage of Hurricane Sandy, I have been reminded of how the country watched as Katrina exposed some things that people didn’t want to believe. It also makes me wonder about how we look at hurricanes that affect the eastern seaboard as opposed to hurricanes that affect the gulf coast and other places.

What will we learn from the coverage and response to Sandy? Have we learned what we needed to from Katrina?

  1. There are many political-social analyses that someone could do. I’ll stay out of that.

    But there is a purely physical fact to be noted: a warmer atmosphere has more energy, which leads to more energetic events – bigger droughts, bigger storms. You can’t tie any single storm to global warming, but folks, this is what the future looks like.
