National Hurricane Center chief Shuts Down CNN’s Don Lemon Trying to Link Hurricane Ian to Climate Change

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s like a demented form of Tourette’s Syndrome with these these evil leftwing aa**holes. They are politicize EVERYTHING.

Nine of the top ten deadliest hurricanes all happened before 1957. And don’t get me started on Noah and the great flood.

The people of the great state of Florida are in great distress. This is hardly the time to push their radical climate hoax.

‘It’s not the time to point score’: Don Lemon is schooled AGAIN by CNN guest after blaming Hurricane Ian on ‘climate change’

  • The liberal CNN host attempted to direct conversation about the imminent hurricane toward the issue of climate change
  • A NOAA hurricane expert told Lemon it was not the appropriate time to discuss climate change and cautioned him against linking it to a single weather event
  • Hurricane Ian stands to destroy parts of Florida, bringing with it astronomical flooding, damage, and potentially loss of life

By Sophie Mann, Daily Mail,28 September 2022:

CNN host Don Lemon spent an interview asking a hurricane expert whether climate change was to blame for hurricane Ian only to be shut down, repeatedly.

As Hurricane Ian approached Florida threatening to bring billions of dollars in damage and place millions of Floridians in immediate danger, Lemon remained laser focused on his talking point.

Ian, currently a Category 4 hurricane, is expected to wallop Florida beginning Wednesday with winds of up to 155 mph and is predicted to bring damages and economic loss in excess of $45 billion.

Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has issued multiple warnings to residents that the storm is going to have ‘major, major impacts in terms of wind, in terms of rain, in terms of flooding.’

Millions have evacuated and millions more are preparing to hunker down and weather the storm.

But instead of focusing on the forthcoming danger and destruction, Lemon, who recently escaped a network purge of some of the most left-wing talent at the company, attempted to turn the conversation political.

During the segment, Lemon asked Acting Director of the NOAA National Hurricane Center Jamie Rohme, ‘What effect climate change has on this phenomenon,’ meaning the hurricane.

Rohme quickly shut down the line of questioning, saying that he would rather focus on the present circumstances of the storm, adding, ‘I don’t think you can link climate change to any one event.’

Rohme repeatedly told Lemon climate change should not be the primary subject of discussion as the hurricane approaches the US and cautioned the host not to blame climate change for any single weather event

But Lemon pushed on, insisting that climate change was to blame for the storm, in a similar fashion to Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar (Minnesota), who was slammed Tuesday for suggesting that voting for members of her party in the upcoming midterm could help thwart future hurricanes and the impact of climate change.

Rohme held firm though, telling Lemon, ‘climate change may be making storms worse, but to link it to any one event, I would caution against that.’

Lemon was determined to have the last word.

‘I grew up there and these storms are intensifying, something is causing them to intensify,’ he said.

Lemon is in the middle of a hot streak of guests on his show pushing back on his loaded questions designed to favor liberal policy and woke talking points.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II earlier this month, Lemon was schooled on air by royal commentator Hilary Fordwich, who told Lemon that reparations for slavery are necessary – but said they should be paid by the descendants of ‘African kings’ who sold their own people into slavery.

Lemon had suggested that the British royal family should pay reparations due to trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and subsequent years of colonialism for which the entity is responsible.

In the interview, which went viral on Twitter this week, Fordwich responded by arguing that African leaders were responsible for supplying millions of enslaved people to European slave traders, saying that reparations should come from African nations.

A stunned Lemon responded that it was an ‘interesting discussion’ and quickly concluded the interview.

Lemon recently escaped a purge of some of the network’s top talent as new CEO Chris Licht attempts to restore some credibility to the network known for bashing Republicans

In recent weeks, CNN has been attempting to purge itself of the reputation of being a woke media source since new CEO Chris Licht pledged to make the network reliable to a broader swath of people again by halting the constant slander of the GOP.

The new movement has so far resulted in the termination of CNN hosts and employees, including John Harwood and Brian Stelter, along with their shows.

Licht previously warned CNN staffers that changes to the network were coming to the network that they would ‘not understand’ or ‘like.’
