The war on the term “climate change” is a prominent feature in the Trump administration’s destruction of the US environmental sector. However, it is impossible to discuss the devastation of Hurricane Harvey without naming it a main cause.
Geoff Brumfiel’s writes, “Climate change is shaping conditions for storms like this one. So if Harvey was a 1-in-100-year storm, for example, ‘maybe it becomes a storm that could happen one in 50 years, or one in 20 years, or one in 10 years.'”
