Actually, I was wondering about the weather influence after a devastating event like the NY Metro area just experienced. I figured, by having read your insider knowledge of the industry in the Gulf area comments in previous posts, you would also have some insight into what people up here are facing in the very near AND long-term future. (Up here long-term is about 6 months).

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Bohica for the life of me I am still having a hard time following you here, "weather influence after a devastating event like NY" When you say after a event are you meaning the probability of events like this increasing or intensity of events I do not know.

My 1st thought is trends like Global Warming from the Oil and Gas Industry or change in ocean or atmospheric conditions due to the industry that could alter the storm direction or intensity but that would be before the NY "event"

or

meaning since the event Sandy hit the Tri State area what are the chances it will happen again? meaning after.

That's a big question not in my realm of business or more extensive study. We know the earth has had natural warming and cooling trends/periods from core samples taken. Inspections/research yields fossils of known organisms that are present at certain temperature ranges to where at some time periods these thrive while other they become less prevalent to almost non existent but return again many years later.

With that said and that's a whole science believe me or the presence of greenhouse gasses increasing we know due to ice core samples that we can analyze from millions of years ago. Again another whole science I am not qualified in. However you cannot deny the fact there has been changes in the earths atmosphere and weather patterns.


Are trends changing therefore increasing or decreasing "events"? I do not know. I am not a extremist and take most claims with a grain of salt. I do believe there is a warming trend that does raise water temps that could influence the severity or category of events but as to how much I have no clue. Such changes could also influence oceanic currents aiding in hurricane trajectory.

Again I do not know, Texas had a terrible drought last year and the meteorologists talk of the El Nino or La Ninya events causing events.What ever that was in 2011 ƒükkêd up the foundation on my house.

Events like Hurricane Sandy is not new in the NY area, they have been happening for centuries. I have no idea if frequencies or intensities have been effected in any way. My thought is all the conditions were just right for the storm to develop and migrate to that area. What are the chances it will happen again in the future? Well I really have no idea other than what are the chances the exact conditions to copy Sandy's development? I don't know that either and don't believe anybody does.

Hope I at least touched on your question/thoughts. Sorry I cannot be of more help.

I'm using too many words.
I believe you have seen the effects of regional disasters in your work areas, from large storms.
I am curious to hear what you witnessed in the recovery end, what works, what fails etc. What people can expect.

My own belief, based on conversations with biologists and other professionals, is that ice ages are cyclical, they happen every 30,000 years or so, and that the additional strains put on the environment through emissions, man made, are negligible.

I also believe that most of the buildings that were lost should not have been there to begin with.

The first paragraph of this reply is related to the original thread, the rest is just my opinion.
