We must reverse policies that drive climate change

Thank you for Beth Daley’s article on the ways in which climate change may have turned Sandy from a typical tropical storm into a fierce hurricane (“Effects of climate change increase risk of storms’ impacts,” Page A6, Oct. 30). She quoted the organizer of this week’s climate change vigil at Government Center, who said, “We need leadership to connect what is happening out there and the policies that drive it.”

The policies that drive climate change include overuse of fossil fuels, inadequate regulation of greenhouse gas emissions, and allowing polluters to befoul our atmosphere for free.
