To the right is the Utne November-December 2012 issue cover (drawn and released prior to Hurricane Sandy).
The cover refers to the “Confronting Climate Change” section with the following articles:
Time to Get Crazy

This Crisis Needs A Movement
Using people power to combat the new climate change by Bill McKibben, from Solutions Journal

Online Only: The Man-Made World of 2112
Realizing our collective and technological potential by Søren Steen Olsen and Steen Scendsen, from ISSUES
Looking at this cover, was (is) Utne magazine the latest Cassandra — an ignored voice providing warnings (accurate warnings) above devastation and disaster to come. And, was Hurricane Sandy (the diminutive of Cassandra) the near real-time epitomization of the disasters to come that Cassandra Utne was/is warning all of us about?
