CLIMATE CHANGE EXACERBATES EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS LIKE THIS.
Note how you hear very little mention of climate change connected to super storms like this one on the US media, and you will never hear anything coming out of the mouth of Donald Trump. Let’s see how much economic damage this super storm does and whether Trump should now start taking climate change more seriously, particularly in terms of taking the US back into the 2015 IPCC Paris Agreement.
By taking action now, the effects can be mitigated further on down the road. Trump talks about a “saving lives” [https://edition.cnn.com/videos/us/2018/09/12/trump-hurricane-florence-remarks-medal-of-honor-sot-vpx.cnn/video/playlists/hurricane-florence/], but denying climate change is only going to lead to more unnecessary potential deaths in the future.
