The Ups and Downs of 2012 Weather

From the January 4, 2013 edition of the Financial Times - - Worsening Weather: Climate change is having an effect.  So should the politics:

"There seems to have been not a single moment of 2012 when some part of the world was not afflicted by extreme weather.  England's wettest year on record; Europe's worst cold snap in decades; flooding and landslides in Brazil, Bangladesh and the Philippines; the smallest Arctic summer ice cover; record-breaking heatwaves in Australia and the U.S.; droughts in North and South America.  Just as Americans were electing their president, their northeast seaboard was battered by Sandy, a superstorm that baffled meteorologists.  For Britains, Christmas was spoiled by severe floods."
