Skip to comments.Hurricane Florence: Washington Post declares Trump is 'complicit' for dangerous storm
Posted on 09/12/2018 8:44:57 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
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 Earths 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 Posts editorial board wrote. The Trump administration has now attacked all three pillars of President Barack Obamas climate-change plan.
The piece concluded: The president has cemented the GOPs 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....

You knew it was coming.
Trump Colluded with Hurricane Florence.
Probably a new special prosecutor should be appointed, and Sessions should recuse himself from the investigation, because he once cussed about the weather or something....
This could take us to the 2020 election, assuming Mueller wraps up anytime before then.
Was he complicit in inducing Hazel in 1954?
There were NEVER hurricanes before Trump came along.
Huh? These people are stupid. How about the President stand in front of the White House and PRAY OUT LOUD for protection from the storm. Just to tick them off.
It would take some doing to out do the Washington Post in reality denial!
He was alive in 1954, so yes (to their convoluted way of thinkingl)
Trump Derangement Syndrome knows no limits.
The Hurricane Steering Machine located in the basement of the White House, so much in evidence during Hurricane Katrina, and put to use by Bush-43 and Karl Rove, has been reactivated and is on course to utterly smash coastal North and South Carolina.
(Dang it, folks, can’t you recognize sarcasm when you see it? Do I have to put a < /sarcasm > tag on EVERY time?)
They should hope he is not powerful enough to bring in a storm like that on the worst of the left...
He was also complicit in inducing that hurricane that sent dorothys house flying into munchkinland and killing that little old lady.
...Was he complicit in inducing Hazel in 1954?
Or Camille in ‘69
So what they’re saying is that opinions can affect the weather.
I was just wondering what took ‘em so long.
“Was he complicit in inducing Hazel in 1954?”
The hurricane or the maid?
Done by those complicit in violating the Constitution with the Kenyanesian Usurpation.
It’s Putin, it’s always Putin!
They should have just called it Hurricane Donald?
Someone slipped up.
