EPA Thinks Climate Change Scientists "Politicize" Harvey By Stating The Facts

EPA Thinks Climate Change Scientists

"The shouting and screaming we hear today [about climate change boosting the strength of hurricanes] and the scientific efforts to support it all fall short on proving there is a link between warming of the atmosphere and our burning of fossil fuels", Coleman wrote on his blog.

These important matters all deserve attention, but the issue that's hardly being discussed at all about Hurricane Harvey is that human-caused global warming and its effects on the climate have a central role in the storm's historic intensity.

Last month, however, Trump moved to replace a regulation that required infrastructure projects be created to withstand rising sea levels and other consequences of global warming, NPR reported. At present, however, there is no rational US administration.

Irma and Harvey are two of the most destructive storms ever hitting the United States.

The only Sunday morning political show to discuss climate change was CNN's State of the Union. The 2017 hurricane season marks the first time since record-keeping began that two Category 4 storms have made USA landfall in the same year, AccuWeather said.

As deniers frequently point out, no individual weather event can be definitively blamed on climate change. And regarding Irma, the WMO cited models showing "hurricanes in a warmer climate are likely to become more intense". After last year's Hurricane Matthew, for instance, prompt insurance payouts helped the Caribbean islands.

The questions come as the Trump administration continues its effort to dismantle environmental regulations and remove references to climate change from websites, and after it dismantled a climate change panel and withdrew from the Paris climate change agreement.

The storm's center was located near Lakeland, Florida, as of early Monday morning at 2 am, moving north of Tampa and Orlando at a fast pace of 14 miles per hour.

Typical GOP. Only when they are suddenly faced with the costs of the damage from climate change-driven flooding are they finally going to maybe think about bringing up admitting that it's a problem.

When politicians spend public funds without considering climate change, they squander taxpayer money and put their constituents in danger. We can no longer afford unlimited development in flood-prone areas, or to deliberately ignore how the ocean is reclaiming entire neighborhoods with sea level rise.
