To the editor:
Hurricane Sandy looks to be the worst storm in recorded history. It was caused by the hottest year in recorded history, which was caused by three decades of the highest CO2 production in history, which was caused by the feeblest government environmental policy response since the environmental movement got going, which was caused by a massive campaign of climate change denial, which was caused by funding from carbon fuel industries, which was caused more than anything else by decisions reached by the Koch Industries of Wichita. Therefore I propose that this storm should be renamed Hurricane Koch.
