Sandy's area of ocean with twelve-foot seas peaked at 1.4 million square miles--nearly one-half the area of the contiguous United States, or 1% of Earth's total ocean area. Most incredibly, ten hours before landfall (9:30 am EDT October 30), the total energy of Sandy's winds of tropical storm-force and higher peaked at 329 terajoules--the highest value for any Atlantic hurricane since at least 1969. This is 2.7 times higher than Katrina's peak energy, and is equivalent to five Hiroshima-sized atomic bombs. At landfall, Sandy's tropical storm-force winds spanned 943 miles of the the U.S. coast. No hurricane on record has been wider; the previous record holder was Hurricane Igor of 2010, which was 863 miles in diameter. Sandy's huge size prompted high wind warnings to be posted from Chicago to Eastern Maine, and from Michigan's Upper Peninsula to Florida's Lake Okeechobee--an area home to 120 million people. Sandy's winds simultaneously caused damage to buildings on the shores of Lake Michigan at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, and toppled power lines in Nova Scotia, Canada--locations 1200 miles apart!

Largest Atlantic tropical cyclones for area covered by tropical storm-force winds:

Olga, 2001: 780,000 square miles
Sandy, 2012: 560,000 square miles
Lili, 1996: 550,000 square miles
Igor, 2010: 550,000 square miles
Karl, 2004: 430,000 square miles

Yeah, totally wee. Miniscule. Al Gore, what a maroon.

Riley, it is you that is the true moron. If you had an uncorrupted neuron left between your rotting zombie ears you would realize that extreme weather events are much more a function of increased population and valued real estate in harms way now than in the past. What is the sound of a tree falling in the forest, if no being is there to hear it.

What sound does a maroon make if there isn't another retarded monkey around to gobble his chromosome-deficient spunk?

Yeah, at least you have your monkey to hear your joy gurgles.

On a related note: Did you know that the sound of sneezes are socially influenced? Deaf people don't voice their sneezes!!!

It's a social convention? Maybe a survival code that lets us know, hey, that guy might be sick or there's a bad patch of briar so we can stay away from a distance? Something like idiots braying their ignorance at full blast as we've seen the Tres Amigos do here?

Just some ruminations. Jizz for thought.

Ron i suggest you read actual analysis of extreme weather[see averages] before you make such claims.
Extreme instances have happened at a higher rate globally since Gores movie.
They just have not been anywhere near you.
Hell where i live in the appalachians ,we have had plenty.Sandy , Irene,numerous tropical depressions that never make it up here usually.

All in the last 15 years

We had not had anything like that since the 70s when Agnes hit here.And you would have to go back considerably further to find more.

I have very little skin in this game,no kids ,no family.

I am a god damn carpenter,with a geology degree.

Should not even care.

But i am compelled,and if anything this thread has done ,it has simply reinforced that.

Resolute.

The intrepid science people here have done nothing but instill a drive for greater knowledge in this topic.

The Arctic is changing and it's changing dramatically. We know this because the people that live here tell us so.

Of course we would love to have made it to Pond but travelling through the Arctic, it is absolutely essential that one considers facts and probabilities and not false hopes and wishes.

Oh, waaaaahhhh. Dry your eyes, Rong.

I would trust you to know about as much about sobriety as you do the climate. I am very happy. Well paid, beautiful wife, beautiful life.... Yeah, totally SUCKS. I sure wish I were unable to retire, alone, and spending every spare minute jabbering here. There's a difference between this online fantasy world and real life you know.

I merely gave you a little "nonsense" about last year's tiny windstorm back East before baiting the usual bears. I'd happily trade more personal shots with you as you seem to want, but I'm a bit tired of the not-so-veiled threats you resort to when your feelings get hurt.

Have a happy day posting, Rong Dong! I'm sure you will hold it down while I climb ;).

Nope you have it backwards.

It's us.

Everything we do affects the weather.

The more violent and greedy we become towards each other and against nature the more nature will retaliate ......

hmmmm,, so even your article says they really dont know the Natural Vs man caused problems Ten four..

Sooo now any weather events are labelled extreme? Havent we done that in the past? Like 100 yr events such as the flood of 97 in the great basin?

And why do they call those events by "100 yr" events? Well because on average they happen every 100 yrs,, at least thats the general thought eh?


What i constantly see in the GW side is that they taylor the facts to fit their angle. The angle should come second, after the facts. Cart before the horse is a way to get nowhere.
