Election. What election?

How to combine the two top news stories. This couldn’t be more clever.

The illustrator Adrian Tomine writes: “Where I was in Brooklyn, I don’t think I would have even known that there was a major storm happening. So I spent the whole night glued to the Internet and watching everything unfolding, just being shocked that this kind of dramatic destruction was happening just miles outside my home. And I started thinking about how it would affect the election. This is a first for me in terms of doing a cover that’s topical with a quick turnaround, and somehow these two significant events just came together into that one image for me.”

New York magazine’s view of Hurricane Sandy

It’s a disaster, naturally

This graphic timeline adapted from Bloomberg Businessweek shows the relative cost of natural disasters in the United States from 1980 to the present day. The article points out that the number of natural disasters since 1996 costing $1bn or more doubled, compared with the previous 15 years. More proof of the effects of global warming perhaps?
