3. I hope we have another Sandy ... (sort of)

The problem is that articles like this don't have the traction they should have and we'll face catastrophic events that dwarf Sandy unless we act quickly and in earnest.
If we need to be hit over the head (yet again) to bring Climate Change to the front-burner then better to have another disaster sooner than later.
The potential for a runaway positive feedback loop involving methane seeps and industrial leakage (both existent at this time) may well render any action we take in the future to be already too late.
