Hurricanes are about to displace a lot of people, destroying homes, lives, and costing people a collective fortune in repairs. What does the Washington Post do about it? Find a way to use this to blame Trump, of course!
I wish I was being hyperbolic. I didn’t believe it when I first saw the headline myself. I thought that perhaps the title of the opinion piece by the WaPo editorial board itself, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit,” was just click bait and that reading the story would further elaborate what they’re really trying to say.
Nope! Trump is helping to create hurricanes, folks.
After acknowledging Trump ringing the alarm about the hurricane was a good thing, WaPo drops this bomb:
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.
