Washington Post Blames Trump for Hurricane Florence

Barack Obama, in his own view and that of the press, could make the waters recede. Trump is ushering them into your bedroom, according to the MSM.

Just when you thought the press had found every possible way to hate on Donald Trump, there’s this headline from the Washington Post.

At least it’s labeled an editorial this time.

Of course, their point is that Trump minimizes climate change and does terrible things like withdrawing the United States from an international treaty that would have undermined U.S. sovereignty, harmed the economy, and probably done little – especially with respect to what the United States can do – to stem whatever portion of climate change is due to human activity.

“It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change,” the Post grudgingly admits, even though the headline suggests otherwise. “But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters . . . Florence is feasting on warm Atlantic Ocean water.”

It’s a feast fit for a hurricane!

So let me see if I can get all this straight. Obama is responsible for the Trump economy. Trump is responsible for hurricanes. And, I suppose, Mike Pence is to blame for meteors that hit the earth.

I mean, he probably supported cutting funding for a telescope or something.

  1. Can we suggest that the good folks at the WashPo set an example for all of us energy wasters?
    They could demand that all employees walk to work, climb stairs instead of elevate, deliver their newspaper by Little Red Wagons pulled by undocumented citizens, and reduce the size of the actual publication by half?

    Truth be told- hurricanes and other storms that hit the East Coast are started off the coast of African nations – those who don’t seem to give a hee-haw about saving the earth, but would rather have a big SUV to tool around in.

    • In the bizarre world of the Washington Post, only Republicans can destroy the climate, cause hurricanes, etc. Thus, the fanatic lefty Washington Post reporters activities can not possibly impact the climate in a negative way. There’s no way they can be “energy wasters”. ;+}

    • From the June 2018 BP Statistical Review of Global Energy (67th edition):
      1. Global CO2 emissions in 2017 grew 1.6%
      2. For 9th time this century & 3rd year in a row, US had largest CO2 decline in the world.
      3. US CO2 lowest since ’92, year UN Frmwrk on Convent’n Clmt Chng (UNFCCC) began.
      4. China’s CO2 largest in the world every year this century for 4yrs,
      5. China, India accnt for 1/2 of world increase in CO2 emissions. EU has also increased.
      US’s vast nat gas reserves, now available bc of new extraction methods such as fracking, have reduced need for coal to create electricity, cutting CO2 output.
