If you want to see the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy on American gardens then watch this video of a gigantic tree being flattened.
The USA is picking up the pieces after hurricane Sandy hit the East coast and caused widespread destruction earlier this week. One result of this devastating event might be a change in the American reluctance to accept that climate change is possibly the biggest issue facing our planet . Suggestions are that the issue could now move to the top of the political, social and economic agenda.
The jury is still out for many scientists on whether Hurricane Sandy was a direct result of man made climate change or a freak of nature. Whatever the reasons, storms affecting America are becoming more frequent as well as extreme drought and this has huge implications for the future of our gardens.
