Hurricane Sandy Exposes Vulnerability Of Costal US

This article claims that we will spend over $50 billion to repair damages from Sandy.  Hopefully, the hurricane, and the drought in the mid-west this summer, will put climate change back on the political agenda.  The public is more responsive to crises than it is to predictions of future damages from climate change.  Budget deficits are not as big a problem as the risks of inaction on climate change.
