Health care officials, social workers and other volunteers are paying close attention to the elderly in the days since Sandy left millions in the dark throughout metropolitan New York and New Jersey. While some say life experiences have tempered the ability of the region's oldest residents to cope with the immensity of the destruction, others note signs that the stress of no electricity, displacement from their homes and upheaval from their daily routines is beginning to take a toll.

A ferocious nor'easter storm could wreak more havoc on areas hit hardest by Superstorm Sandy, as plunging temperatures threaten the nearly two million homes and businesses that remain without power in the Northeast. The nor'easter is expected to hit on Wednesday in the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Temperatures could drop into the 20s and bring "strong gusty winds," rain and coastal flooding, according to a National Weather Service forecast.

Remember, climate scientists and others have for quite some time been warning New York City that climate change was dramatically increasing the odds of a devastating storm surge — see Greg Laden’s post, “Peer Reviewed Research Predicted NYC Subway Flooding by #Sandy.” See also today’s NY Times story, “For Years, Warnings That It Could Happen Here.” Also a brand new study of storm surges since 1923 finds “that Katrina-magnitude events have been twice as frequent in warm years compared with cold years” — so more severe surges are on the way.

In this photo taken Oct. 23, 2012, a ship is seen in the distance moored at the BP oil refinery in the Strait of Georgia just beyond the location of a proposed coal exporting terminal in Ferndale, Wash., near Bellingham, Wash. The progressive college town of Bellingham is at the center of one of the fiercest environmental debates in the region: should the Northwest become a hub for exporting U.S. coal to Asia? A proposal to build one of as many as five coal terminals here has divided the town, pitting union and businesses that welcome jobs against environmentalists who worry about coal dust and greenhouse gas emissions. A trade group is running TV ads touting the projects, while numerous cities such as Seattle and Portland are opposing coal trains through their communities.
In a description of a trip to a hunting lodge, BP executive Tim Summers was quoted as saying it was more like a “Four Seasons hotel in the middle of nowhere” and that the married Khan travelled accompanied by “seven glamorous women” and came to dinner “armed with a chrome-plated pistol”. Khan is reported to be very fond of firearms and to have told senior BP executives that he regularly watches The Godfather, which he considers “a manual for life”.
