Good article by Neela Banerjee of LA Times that tries to find an answer to the question as to why the superstorm hurricane Sandy has influenced by climate change or not. The story was written interviewing a lot of experts and other relevant people and puts up references to make points. Climatologists perhaps rightly say that 'no single weather event, be it drought, snowfall or hurricane, is caused by climate change. Rather, climate change amplifies the intensity or duration of extreme weather.'
