Re: “Don’t you dare connect disaster to climate change” (TNT, 5-25).
There have been many disasters worse than the ones so far this year. And as far as records, let us not forget the “year without summer” in 1816. In that year the crops failed and there was starvation throughout the Western Hemisphere.
I think in this modern age we are in, where news on the second is available to all, we get a bit carried away with just how bad things are.
Do not get me wrong; bad things have happened this year and sadly resulted in loss of many lives. But to insinuate it is any worse than previous years shows a lack of the facts. I do believe in climate change, but I think man plays little if any significant role in this change.
