The effects are clear, if not the cause, says LA Times

Today, in an editorial, the Los Angeles Times took on a question that many of us have been pondering – did climate change cause super-storm Sandy? The newspaper didn’t try to answer the question, but instead made a strong case for how global warming made Sandy more intense:

In part, it's because Sandy involved a highly unusual confluence of weather events, some of which may have resulted from a widely documented rise in global ocean and surface temperatures…But more important than the exact causes of Sandy's fury is the fact that it was so predictable.

The newspaper observed how climate scientists have long warned about the side-effects of climate change – the increase in extreme weather events like Sandy, and rising sea levels that would allow storms to sweep into low-lying places such as Manahattan and erode coastal areas like the Jersey shoreline.

Warned the Times: “These predictions aren't just theoretical worries about the future; they appear to be happening now.”

As for those who complain that combatting climate change is too expensive, the newspaper pointed to the $20 billion projected costs of cleaning up after Sandy, and made this conclusion:

The question isn't whether we can afford to clean up our energy sources, it's whether we can afford not to.

This is totally unpredictable. If this can be predictable, there would to some option left to save the human disaster. But it is impossible to stop such calamities.

If Sandy was so predictable, as it said in the article above, then why did the predictions of cataclysmic disaster not happen to NY, NJ and the other states? Sandy wasn't as predictable as they thought.

If Not HAARP many experts claim that we are headed for a mini-ice age.

No, it was caused by HAARP. This is created by man and because Obama wants to have a major crisis happen that will enable him to declare Martial Law.

Specifically HAARP is controlled and maintained by our military, AF and Navy a joint effort. Used heavily during the Vietnam War and other times as well.
