President Trump is “actively making the problem worse” regarding Hurricane Florence by not addressing climate change as “a root cause of worsening storms,” meterologist Eric Holthaus said during a Thursday night interview with MSNBC.

“You can’t really talk about this without talking about climate change,” Holtaus told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. “We have some evidence that was published this week that the storm is actually a little bit bigger and the rain is going to be more intense because of warmer water.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Holtaus serves as a columnist for Grist, a non-profit environmental magazine.

He said hurricanes over the last few decades have had a tendency to move more slowly, which has led to them dropping more rain on specific locations once they hit land. He attributed this change to global warming in response to a question from Hayes about Hurricane Harvey.

“One of the things that happened with Harvey, which we saw, is that the slower moving the storm is, the worse it can be because it just stops and drops a lot of rain. Is that right?” Hayes asked Holtaus.

“Yeah, exactly. And we’re seeing that a little bit too in the last few decades that hurricanes are moving a little bit more slowly as they’re making landfall as weather patterns change in response to climate change,” Holtaus replied.

“It’s gotten to the point where we have a president that is denying the impacts of this hurricane season last year and this year and actively making the problem worse by, you know, not addressing this root cause of worsening storms.”

The Trump administration pulled the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement in 2017, and Trump has worked to unwind regulations imposed by the Obama administration on coal-fired power plants that were intended to address climate change.

      What gets me is that when Obama was in office, there were 3-4 hurricanes. No one blamed Obama for them. The hurricanes even occurred while Obama stayed in the Paris Climate Agreement, which didn’t change weather patterns. Some people are just so naive!

    He belongs with the group of people that still believe the world is flat. True. It was on youtube – they have quite a large following and even sell products showing how the world is flat. And they don’t believe in gravity – said it was density that kept us on earth. So the flatness must have something to do with hurricanes. Thats where this s called weather predictor should be. 😊
