Did you here that the New York, New Jersey area is about to be hit with another storm?
If I ever had any doubt about Climate Change Sandy is absolute proof. The North East never had Hurricanes when I was a child. We had Tropical Storms and near Blizzard conditions. I have been caught in scary show storms but Sandy was scary in my own house.
I fear that more is coming and they may be worse.
If anyone tells me it is all a natural cycle I am going to explode. Part of Climate Change maybe natural but Fossil Fuel has clearly accelerated the Climate Change.
Many people in S Beach Staten Island lost everything. It breaks my heart. If I won Lotto I would donate to them directly. Seeing places I know devastated and hearing about children that died makes me cry.
I had a large section of a enormous Oak Tree fall on my house. The incompetent jerk from NYC Parks Department denied me permission too take the tree down. He said, it would never fall. I should sue. If not for the lower roof over hang I would be dead and probably my husband too. It fell on the roof and did not come through the window. My son's room is in the front and I think of him wacking up coming in my room and seeing us dead. The tree is on the side towards the back.
