Sandy and the Climate Crisis March 19, 2013 : 8:37 PM

A new report suggests the loss of Arctic sea ice contributed to Superstorm Sandy:

"Cornell and Rutgers researchers report in the March issue of Oceanography that the severe loss of summertime Arctic sea ice — attributed to greenhouse warming — appears to enhance Northern Hemisphere jet stream meandering, intensify Arctic air mass invasions toward middle latitudes, and increase the frequency of atmospheric blocking events like the one that steered Hurricane Sandy west into the densely populated New York City area."
