CNN failed in its attempt to link Hurricane Ian to climate change

The arrival of Hurricane Ian in western Florida, in the United States, not only meant the prior evacuation of two million citizens, but also the destruction of homes and public places by floods. With winds of 185 kilometers per hour, the eye of the hurricane is expected to move in the next few hours towards central Florida and approach the states of South Carolina and Georgia.

All eyes are now on the numerous damages that “Ian” is leaving, and therefore, US media report minute by minute. The far-left network CNN joined the news thread not only with reports from the streets of Florida, but also with interviews with experts charged with their usual political-ideological tone. That is how the driver Don Lemon decided to insinuate to the director of the main US scientific agency dedicated to the oceans, that the cause of Hurricane Ian could be climate change.

Just as progressive groups have appropriated the banner of caring for the environment to gain sympathy and funds, this time CNN sought to change the rhetoric around Hurricane Ian to focus on climate change. An issue that in the US is being used for partisan purposes and away from true solutions.

The televised interview

During a televised segment, Lemon asked Jamie Rohme, acting director of NOAA’s National Hurricane Center, “what effect climate change has on this phenomenon.” The expert’s response was blunt despite the driver’s insistence.

Rohme: “We can come back and talk about climate change later. I want to focus on the here and now. We think the rapid intensification [of the hurricane] is probably over. There could be a bit more to it though, as it’s still over warm waters.”

Lemon: But what effect does climate change have on this phenomenon that is happening now? Because it seems that these storms are intensifying. That’s the question,” Lemon asked again.

Rohme: “I don’t think you can link climate change to any particular event. Overall, cumulatively, climate change may be making storms worse. But I would warn you before linking it to any particular event.”

The expert dismissed the CNN host’s progressive theory. But Lemon wanted to close with an ironic comment as he could not refute the expert. “I grew up there and these storms are intensifying, something is causing them to intensify.”

They attack DeSantis


Florida is not the only one affected by the passage of Hurricane Ian. Cuba and Honduras also suffered the passage of the natural phenomenon. On the island, the winds reached 208 kilometers per hour, leaving gigantic material damage. In the Central American country, the intense rains affected more than 67,000 people.

For their part, all 67 Florida counties declared a state of emergency. Governor Ron DeSantis has been working hand in hand with local authorities and that was also taken advantage of by CNN journalists. One of them wanted to misrepresent the issue when he sarcastically criticized the governor for asking citizens to respect local and federal security guidelines. He used the argument that DeSantis has challenged the mask and vaccine mandate in the past. In other words, he compared measures to protect the lives of citizens with arbitrary impositions on health.
