The high cost of Irma and Harvey: $290 Billion

Of course the scientific community, as the New York Times put it, believes that 'drawing links between warming global temperatures and the ferocity of hurricanes is about as controversial as talking about geology after an quake'. "We are now updating our website to reflect EPA's priorities under the leadership of President Trump and Administrator Pruitt". "Is never good for you?"

Acosta brought up how the previous administration "saw a connection between climate change and homeland security and that the frequency and intensity of powerful storms like Harvey and Irma can pose a problem for future administrations". "This amounts to 0.5 of a percentage point of the GDP of $19 trillion", Myers said. The Environmental Protection Agency expressed distaste for these observations, however.

White House Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert answers questions during a White House briefing September 11. A storm surge of 10 feet was recorded in the Florida Keys and Naples reported a 7-foot storm surge in at least one location, according to the National Weather Service. If I search the archives, I can come up with a few more irresponsible statements from Trump administration officials, but not many. Hurricane Harvey quickly became known for the 50 inches of rain it dumped on the Houston area. Now, Hurricane Irma is tearing through Florida. At the same time, the extra heat in the air and water means there is more energy to feed the storm, raising the wind speed of the hurricane. Why did we have two major hurricanes (Irma and Jose) and a third, somewhat lesser storm (Katia) churning at the same time? Tying such long-run trends to individual weather events is hard, although the great amount of precipitation generated by Harvey may allow scientists to establish a direct link in its case. "Our West Coast customers will likely be without power for a much longer period of time", CEO Eric Silagy said.

Trump praises scandal-scarred Malaysian prime minister
Razak has met Trump before, and boasts of a warm relationship with the billionaire former businessman. He was sworn into the position on 3 April 2009 to succeed Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.


The storm's center was located near Lakeland, Florida, as of early Monday morning at 2 am, moving north of Tampa and Orlando at a fast pace of 14 miles per hour. Global warming has altered all of those parameters. The day after Pruitt characterised climate change talk as a thoughtless digression for people fearing their house would be washed away in a flood, Regalado called Irma the "poster child" for climate change.

The 82-year-old climate skeptic added: "Until they prove the basic foundation of their scientific position, the AlGorians are guilty of scientific fraud". And they will - unless their work is hampered by political hacks.

When politicians spend public funds without considering climate change, they squander taxpayer money and put their constituents in danger.
