Dirty Energy Leading to Dirty Weather
Hurricane Sandy is a devastating reminder of the extreme weather risks of a changing climate, as increased warming raises the intensity of superstorms and droughts. Higher ocean temperatures are contributing to heavier rainfall and higher sea levels are producing stronger storm surges.
