Hurricanes Have Been Around Since Long Before Climate Change
Hurricane damage - what is Biden going to do?

By now most of the country is aware of the gut punch Hurricane Ian gave Florida. The damage is on par with Hurricane Andrew in 1992 and Charlie in 2004, Hurricane Ian was a much larger storm encompassing the entire peninsula. The Ft. Myers area took the storm surge, and it looks like a lawn mower ran over that part of the state. The death toll in the U.S. is now over one hundred and the rescue effort is turning into one of recovery.
The biggest problem is the massive flooding over most of the state which is complicating the search and rescue as well as recovery. The storm dumped over 20 inches of rain and we are seeing some of the worst flooding in 100 years. The St. Johns River which pulls its water from south-central Florida as it flows north is moving a big slug of water breaking the flooding records.
Hurricane Ian is a crisis that is too tempting for the nut jobs on the left to leave alone. Before the storm hit Ft. Myers, Don Lemon of CNN was beating the climate change drum. In an interview with an NOAA (1) representative, Lemon tried to tie the hurricane to Climate Change, but the NOAA rep. shut him down, as there was no way to connect climate change to the storm. Of course, the rest of the left-wing magpies are blaming the hurricane on Gov. DeSantis and President Donald Trump with a whole host of excuses.
Those who worship climate change don’t care about the fact there have always been monstrous hurricanes and they are affected by long-recognized atmospheric events.
One question is how the Biden Administration is going to respond to the disaster and what kind of support they will really provide. Biden has a long history of promises and promises with nothing backing them up.
The greatest asset the State of Florida has is Gov. DeSantis, and he is implementing a well-organized and run relief operation. The most vulnerable have the highest priority while survival supplies are being dispersed at the points of need. One can only imagine if a left-wing politician sat in the governor’s office, it could be a total disaster.
