Fox News quotes Exec. Director
Gregory Wrightstone: “What they’re trying to do is politicize the pain and suffering of these people to promote their green agenda.”
Democrats blaming climate change for Hurricane Ian at odds with science, experts say
From Fox News’ Thomas Catenacci:
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.”
