Hurricane Florence may reshape the climate change debate
This editorial from The Baltimore Sun includes these types of opinions:
- Hurricane Florence may pose a threat to the Trump Administration’s energy policies and EPA rollbacks, because it is “it is safe to say that climate change is a major reason why Florence may be bigger and stronger and why there are likely to be more such monster storms in our future.”
- The reversal of the Obama-era climate policy, combined with the terrible decision President Trump made to pull out of the Paris accord, could have disastrous consequences not just for American lives, but also for the economy.
- As climate disasters continue to pile up, perhaps the president will realize what the majority of Americans already have: these events are going to offset any cost savings that may be made by the rollbacks in energy policy. Hurricane Florence may be the tipping point.
