    Headline from Washington Post says it all...
    Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.

    YET AGAIN, a massive hurricane feeding off unusually warm ocean water has the potential to stall over heavily populated areas, menacing millions of people. Last year Hurricane Harvey battered Houston. Now, Hurricane Florence threatens to drench already waterlogged swaths of the East Coast, including the nation’s capital . If the Category 4 hurricane does, indeed, hit the Carolinas this week, it will be the strongest storm on record to land so far north.

    President Trump issued several warnings on his Twitter feed Monday, counseling those in Florence’s projected path to prepare and listen to local officials. That was good advice. Yet when it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters.

    As far as the comment that this will be the strongest storm on record so far north, Hurricane Hazel, which hit the Carolinas in 1954, had estimated winds of 120 MPH. Then there was Hugo in 1989, with 140 MPH winds that hit SC. But the Washington Post is going after Donald Trump, facts and history be damned.

    ...Collectively written by the WaPo "editorial board"... :upeyes:

    Of course, we all KNEW this stupidity would come. It was just a question of which leftist propaganda organ would be the first.

    I was expecting the left to say South Carolina deserves this for voting for Trump, like they did with the hurricane in Texas.

    Great point. I'm sure someone at the usual leftist newspapers has a story ready to roll out about SC's comeuppance. Just need to see some damage first.

    I'm no fan of Trump, but this "climate change" nonsense is the modern equivalent of snake oil. No way that an increase from 300 parts per million to 400 parts per million of a trace gas that makes up only 0.04% of our entire atmosphere is the root cause of more frequent hurricanes with any statistical significance whatsoever. For that matter, there isn't even evidence that hurricanes are becoming stronger and/or more frequent.

    From the article:
    It's hard because you can't.

    This is just the same tired "close the debate" fallacy that the environmental lobby has been pushing for several years now. Of course there is "reasonable doubt" because as of yet there still hasn't been any conclusive proof that man made climate change is even a real thing. Yes, we have an effect on our environment, but so do ants. There's no conclusive proof that we do so to any meaningful amount. And no way we are a bigger influence on global temperatures than even the smallest of variations in solar output.

    This is all based on the FALSE assumption that there is such a thing as man made climate change. Fortunately the majority of Americans have recognized these Red Hot Lies.
