“We are adding CO2 to the atmosphere at a rate that is outside the bounds of the entire 65 million paleoclimate record. The Earth has never experienced a thermal impulse occurring at this rate ever before. ... Climate extremes are going to be more frequent and Hurricane Sandy is an example of what that could mean. We're also saying it could get a whole lot worse than that.”
