    Jan. Feb.  they're uncommon, but they're well known.

    no one has really shown much of a link between cyclonic activity (that goes for tornadoes AND hurricanes) and AGW--much stronger evidence is in things like droughts, some major flooding events, etc.  

    Things like Sandy may point to the hazards of sea level rise--the sea level around Battery Park, for example, is I think a foot or so higher than it was last century (probably have my number off)

    but the hurricane itself doesn't really show all that much.

    In general, any perception in increased tornadic activity is really a result of improved tracking--I think it has held fairly constant over the past century.  You can find several Jan. outbreaks in Wikipedia, etc...

      Weather isn't climate.

      But we're seeing that anthropogenic climate change is affecting the weather.

      So, are you saying it's all God's work? That was my first theory.
