"I don't think the weather is from the climate change. I feel like the government is making it out to be something more than it really is. I really feel like they have some type of control over it."
Felesia Porter, Oakland
"Yeah, I feel like it has something to do with it, but I also feel that it's part of a trend. I've heard somewhere that a lot of hurricanes have hit New York since, you know, the 1800s . It's just the magnitude of it is a little more than what it usually is."
Ben Cung, San Jose
"I think it probably is something to do with global warming, but then again weather is such a chaotic science that it could have been caused by a butterfly flapping its wings in Mexico."
Bill Hayes, Sunnyvale
"I do believe that Sandy was caused by the climate change, but not as direct as some people would like to imagine. So I believe that Sandy is partially our fault, but it's also partially natural effects."
Samuel Jackson, Mountain View
"I don't believe it's got anything to do with climate change. I think it's just a cycle."
Bill Ross, Melbourne
