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.

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.
