    Exclamation WaPo - Hurricane Florence "Trump is complicit"

    Hurricane Florence: Washington Post declares Trump is 'complicit' for dangerous storm

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018...ous-storm.html

    The editorial board of the Washington Post has declared that President Trump is “complicit” for Hurricane Florence because of his views on climate change.

    The massive storm has not made landfall yet, but the Post published a column on Wednesday headlined, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.”

    The piece also notes that Trump has given “good advice” when issuing hurricane warnings via his Twitter feed before it launched an attack on the president.

    “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,” the editorial board wrote.

    Billionaire Jeff Bezos’ paper then quotes a climate researcher who said that previous hurricanes would not have produced so much rain without “human-induced climate change” and Florence is another indication of global warming.

    “With depressingly ironic timing, the Trump administration announced Tuesday a plan to roll back federal rules on methane, a potent greenhouse gas that is the main component in natural gas. Drillers and transporters of the fuel were supposed to be more careful about letting it waft into the atmosphere, which is nothing more than rank resource waste that also harms the environment,” the Post’s editorial board wrote. “The Trump administration has now attacked all three pillars of President Barack Obama’s climate-change plan.”

    The piece concluded: “The president has cemented the GOP’s legacy as one of reaction and reality denial. Sadly, few in his party appear to care.”

    Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that the mainstream media ‘finds new ways to embarrass themselves and further erode Americans confidence in them” on a daily basis.

    “This column is so absurd it should be coming from The Onion not the Washington Post. To the extent that climate change is happening, it is a global phenomenon that has been occurring for decades and decades,” Barron said. “The media won’t give Trump credit for the economy but they will blame him for a hurricane. You can’t make this stuff up.”

    its already weakened to a Cat 3. I'm sure there will be bad flooding but the extremist fear mongering of this being the worst storm to ever hit the Atlantic coast.... I'm calling it now, it won't be so bad.
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

    I know...at TWC they sounded disappointed.

    These weather people and government media organs should be throat punched for this $#@!, and it happens all the time.

    For $#@!'s sake...the US has bad weather at times, always has.

    In the spring you get tornadoes, in the summer you get massive heat, in the fall you get hurricanes and forest fires, in the winter, brutal cold and blizzards.

    They are running around with their hair on fire over the west coast Florida red tides.

    This is a naturally occurring phenomenon, that was documented by the Spanish sailors and explorers in the 16th century.

    So are massive, powerful hurricanes.

    Cat 3 barely and dropping.. to 115. (at last peek)
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    The single biggest thing to increase “risks” and damage from hurricanes is ever increasing development in danger zones. Go ahead, build a house on the beach or a flood plain, but don’t come crying to the taxpayers when your home gets destroyed.

    Blaming Trump for a hurricane?
    This kind of nonsense is why no one takes the media seriously anymore.

    But the people who can afford to often times are the ones who write the checks to the politicians who decide to cover it... and those that aren't... well its a way for the politicians to buy votes.

    If you look at the geography of North Carolina you will see that this storm is tracked to travel well inland. Hurricane Hugo was 1989. Charlotte had heavy flood damage and they are 200 miles inland.

    Where do you think people should live? Not the Midwest because tornadoes. Not the West because earthquakes. Not the north because of the reason.

    I have lived inland. I have seen areas that almost every winter were flooded and were standing water for a month or more. Those areas made great farmland. Today, those areas are packed with houses, condos, apartments and strip malls. Despite the best modern drainage systems, there will come a time when too much rain will once again overwhelm and flood those areas.

    How about don’t build on flood plains. How about not import 100s of millions of people into the US?
