Accurate forecast of atypical storm telling

I have read in the newspaper and watched on television some very excellent detailed post facto explanations of why the eye of Hurricane Sandy made a hard left turn into southern New Jersey and then curled around Connecticut.

What I find astounding is that this scenario was predicted days before it happened. The weather forecasters and computer modeling that produced this accurate prediction provided a measure of the progress that science has made in explaining how the world really works.

I hope that this example will give second thoughts to the rain-dancers, the religious extremists and the greedy climate change deniers. Science has proven itself to be a reliable basis for making decisions about our collective future.
