Skip to comments.Democrats blaming climate change for Hurricane Ian at odds with science, climate experts say

Multiple experts contacted by Fox News Digital argued that there isn't sufficient evidence to suggest climate change caused Hurricane Ian or any individual natural disaster.
The experts' comments come as a series of media outlets, Democrats and progressive commentators continue to blame the hurricane on human-caused global warming. Hurricane Ian slammed into southwest Florida as a Category 4 storm on Wednesday, causing more than a million residents to lose power and prompting stark safety warnings from Florida officials.
"What they're trying to do is politicize the pain and suffering of these people to promote their green agenda," Gregory Wrightstone, the executive director of the climate policy think tank CO2 Coalition, told Fox News Digital in an interview. "Well, their policies and their agenda to promote renewables will do far greater economic destruction to the country and Florida."
Over the last several days, media outlets, including the New York Times, Associated Press, Politico, NPR and Axios, have published news stories reporting that climate change is to blame for Hurricane Ian and the storm's rapid intensification. A Time magazine article said the "science is well known" that climate change created the conditions for Hurricane Ian.
In addition, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., appeared to suggest that Americans need to vote for Democrats to avoid future hurricanes during an interview Tuesday. Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-Ill., tweeted Thursday that "the rapid storm intensification we're seeing with Hurricane Ian will become more common and more dangerous" as the climate changes.
And a series of progressive commentators and climate activists took to social media to similarly peg the hurricane on global warming.
"Ian is a climate change hurricane," Pam Keith, a former Democratic Senate candidate and founder of left-wing firm Center for Employment Justice, tweeted Wednesday.

Science doesn’t matter. The media and the Dems want this to be true, so they present it as such. A significant portion of the American public is too stupid to question what they are told.
72+ genders is at odds with science but hey, don’t let actual real science stand in the way. The Left has time and time and time again proven such, all the while, proclaiming they are following ‘the science’. Go figure.
The Religion of Climate is at odds with science.
Also, democrats who say men can give birth or that ample is a female and can compete in sports agaisnt females and vice versa etc is at odds with science too

Right. And just have an actual expert try to present anti-climate change findings at a college or a town hall. There’d be a riot. Free speech is only for one side these days.
There’s a reason for the 72 genders. Gender Studies before that was male or female. The end. So they had to expand the whole circus so people could get degrees in it.
They need to do a little research on the storm that wiped out Indianola TX in 1875 and 1886. It put a storm surge 15 miles inland and pretty much scrubbed the land clean of any sign of man.
There isn’t sufficient evidence to suggest humans cause climate change it’s feel good notion save a whale no plastic eat bugs bicycle paths ....................................
Humans give then selves to much credit of what they can do if earth feels sick it’ll just get rid of our ass.
Think COVED was bad try this
But hurricanes are 'born' out of west Africa. So, shouldn't we be asking west Africans what they're doing to curb global 'warming'?
