Following so closely on the heels of the horrific droughts and wildfires of this past summer, Hurricane Sandy should be making it abundantly clear to all of us what lies ahead if we don't get serious about reversing climate change. Climate change is changing our weather patterns, often making weather more extreme.
Brainstorms are ultimately doomed because they are not storms, but dumps. Which brings me to Hurricane Sandy. Now by no means am I demeaning the suffering and the tragedy wrought by this horrific natural disaster, but we will soon witness the positive results of this (b)rainstorm.

Halloween may well be a time of ghost, goblins, witches and spirits. But when I celebrate Halloween, my focus is on loftier ideals. That is, on the drawing together of neighborhoods and communities in a unified desire to slow down and re-focus on all things fun and pleasurable.
You might think that Hurricane Sandy, with all its tremendously tragic -- but oddly photogenic -- terror and destruction would be a difficult story to formulate strong opinions about (beyond simply "I'm against") but this is why you're just some jerk with a real job and not a Canadian newspaper guy.
Why do we have such a problem with admitting to ourselves that climate change is real and it's here? I would argue that religion, specifically the rise of a rather dangerous breed of dogmatic Christianity, is to blame.
After all, you can take your pick from an onslaught of GOP members who have either questioned evolution, biology, or climate change and have all cited their belief in God as justification.
Hurricane Sandy is only one part of a emerging trend that sees extreme weather becoming the new normal, as we continue to drive the planet's warming, these kinds of deadly, unpredictable storms will happen more and more and more and the simple fact is that we can only be so prepared for their impacts.
I am afraid because I know that this is not a rogue incident but that as long as business as usual continues this is the new normal. That fear is coupled with a profound faith in the power of our generation, and the power of people to change business as usual and shatter the status quo.
