Article from NYT warmist Justin Gillis contains a number of surprisingly sane comments from warmist scientists

Scientists Unsure if Climate Change Is to Blame for Hurricane Sandy -
Hesitantly, climate scientists offered an answer this week that is likely to satisfy no one, themselves included. They simply do not know for sure if the storm was caused or made worse by human-induced global warming.
“My profession hasn’t done its homework,” said Kerry A. Emanuel, a climate scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “I think there’s going to be a ton of papers that come out of this, but it’s going to take a couple of years.”
“The climatology seems to have changed,” Dr. Masters said. “We’re getting these very strange, very large storms with very low central pressures that don’t have that much wind at the surface.”
“My view is that a lot of this is chance,” [Trenberth] said. “A hybrid storm is certainly one which is always in the cards, and it’s one we’ve always worried about.”
