I am tired of the lying enviro-whackos. Hurricanes have been hitting the NE US throughout recorded history (a big one hit Massachusetts is 1635) and there is evidence of hurricanes hitting before that. Some of these storms were quite a bit stronger than Sandy. In fact, over the last 20 years the frequency of such storms hitting the NE is lower than normal. For example, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_New_England_hurricanes#Pre.E2.80.9317th_century
I suppose that the enviro-whackos claim that the 1635 storm was due to pollution caused by the Puritans burning non-fossil fuels. Sandy was NOT proof of human-caused Global Warming. Sandy was an example of what has been common throughout history.
