WH Homeland Security Adviser Asked to Blame Hurricanes on Climate Change

Hurricane Irma exposes Trump over climate change says Christian Aid

Hurricane Harvey brought even costlier damage to parts of Texas, giving the US economy a double shot that could be large enough to show up in national numbers.

Commentary by Kate Gordon, a senior advisor at the Paulson Institute, where she provides strategic support on issues related to climate change and sustainable economic growth, and a nonresident fellow at the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University.

Bossert did not address whether he believed climate change was the ultimate cause of the storms, but noted that scientists were "dead on" when they predicted that Irma would be an unusually strong and powerful hurricane season. "This is the time that the president and the EPA and whoever makes decisions needs to talk about climate change", Regalado told the Miami Herald on Friday.

Irma made landfall over the Keys shortly before 9:30 a.m. on Sunday.

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. Bowman is the public affairs officer for EPA chief and climate change denier Scott Pruitt, who refuses to link Carbon dioxide emissions to global warming, despite extensive research saying otherwise. "This is a truly, truly poster child for what is to come".

Maybe the least covered story is that the Red Cross, one of the leading fundraisers for Hurricane Harvey relief, has such a bad record in providing accountability (i.e., where'd the money go?) from past disaster relief efforts that groups in Houston are organizing on their own to meet needs following the storm. "American Well is extending these services to lend as much help as we can to people affected by the storm".

"That's a good sign that we can start seeing some relief at the pump", Montgomery said. And Jose, the Category 4 hurricane right on its heels, is making it the first time on record that there have been two hurricanes with sustained winds above 150 miles per hour in the Atlantic at the same time.

"Clearly we dealt with Houston and we were prepared, more so, in terms of how we would pivot to our operation in South Florida", United spokesman Hobart said.
