"Click on the angel tree banner at the very top. We're talking about the assertion that the severity and frequency of tornadoes hurricanes is due to climate change. Now again, I try to use only left wing sources. For example, there's a guy named Steve malloy. He is a Trump EPA transition member. He said this, quote, there is no evidence of any increase or tornado frequency or tornado intensity over the past 50 years. It's awful in the aftermath of such natural disasters that climate activists and their politicians first think in knee jerk fashion of advancing the climate agenda rather than helping the victims and of course he's a conservative who cares what he thinks. Bjorn lomborg wrote a book called the skeptical environmentalist and he is not a lefty since 1950 he tweeted back in 2019, the number of U.S. violent tornadoes has more than halved. More than decrease by half. Again, ignore them because they are on the wrong side. So let's go back to the lefties. Fact check, PolitiFact. Left wing organization, they fact checked me when I've said things that have been correct. And of course, they've been wrong. But they're on the left, and so those of you who are independents who are liberals, I'm sure you love plenty of active fact check. Headline October 14th last year. Fact check. Are there as many hurricanes today compared to a hundred years ago? Hurricanes that reach U.S. land are happening about as often as they did 100 years ago. It's clear that skyrocketing population growth along the coast means storm today are more costly and destructive than a hundred years ago. Jeff masters, meteorologists for Yale, climate connections. Says it is true that the number of U.S. mainline land falling Atlantic hurricanes has not changed appreciably in the past 100 years. There was one year about a century ago in 1916, when 9 tropical storm to hurricanes hit the U.S., mainland with hurricane delta, with hurricane delta ten of hit so far this year, meaning last year. This year's busy season doesn't necessarily mean we should expect more storms. Computer modeling results of Atlantic hurricanes are inconclusive on whether or not climate change will cause an increase or decrease in the number of Atlantic hurricanes in a future weather.

You always seemed to be around the guys. I wanted to emulate. When i started fishing last summer. I spent every summer in new york city going to beaches by the water playing basketball by the water. And when it felt like i might need to stay away from the crowds. I realized i needed to find a new hobby. Something i could do. That would get me out by the water. But i could do by myself. I needed something that would bring me some peace and fishing. Me really did the trick. I went out almost every day last year. And i will good at. It caught multiple fish. It was like this daily injection of joy in my life. But this year as a democ- rolls on i found myself going out a lot less because i have a problem.

"hurricane delta" Discussed on The Takeaway

"But before it was downgraded to tropical storm early monday. The hurricane brought catastrophic flooding. High storms are a hundred and fifty miles per hour winds to low lying coastal communities. Like new orleans. The storm surge was powerful enough to temporarily reverse the flow of the mississippi river and most critically hurricane ida toppled transmission tower. The provides electricity to new orleans the photos of the electrical tower lying in the river. Make it pretty clear. Just how long it's likely to be before. The one million residents without power can once again like the darkness cool their homes or refrigerate their food all of which leads me to ask the one question which proves i came to new orleans identity through marriage rather than birth. I actually asked my mother-in-law if this is enough if facing a month long evacuation or having to brave weeks without electricity finally is enough to make her and my father-in-law consider moving ultimately. It's a silly question. The new orleans and like any tree with deep roots and broad branches. New orleanians do not transplant easily. I think this this this time thinking like the crazy. You know thinking that people could live eighty fleet. You know so that every year you'll have to be given back back but you did. This is our investments are going to be a house of the night place. Hurricane season you know which people frequently to me. John cats met my brilliant kind mother-in-law flip that question about moving into a conversation about climate. Change they're not going anywhere which means war hurricane seasons and more conversations. That sound just like the one. You just heard here to help us. Think about hurricane ida and what the storm means for the city of new orleans is sarah gibbons environment writer at national geographic sir recently wrote about how. It could reshape new orleans. Sarah welcome to the show. Hi melissa happy to be here and also with us. Is oliver lachlan. Us southern bureau chief for the guardian oliver. Great to have you here. Thanks so much. For having minnesota. So oliver i can hear that. You're clearly joining us by phone. Can you tell us what you have seen on the ground there over the past twenty four hours or so sure yes. I'm based in new orleans for the guardian with here When i hit it was incredibly intense pounding doom. I myself right out of high. I live in french codes My restarted leaking. We had some damage and Wind damage as well And i've kind of been out in reporting reporting the city for the past twenty four hours a lot of people incredibly from highs of see being reminded of what happened here sixteen years ago today. Which when katrina hit the city Low people price sank. Thankful of levy systems of your protection system received multi billion dollar bathroom from the federal government over the years Held and there hasn't been Substantial flooding but now people really kind of coming to terms with eight damage and be. There is no power anywhere in the city. Which is Obviously having ready devastating impact on people's lives yet. Let's talk about that for a bit. I think you know for folks who have maybe experienced a power outage for twenty four hours. Maybe even for two or three days. You have a sense of sort of why it's irritating or annoying but talk to us a little bit about what this may mean for the city to be without power for weeks on end. Yeah i mean. I think it's kind of unfolding and people just kind of starting to grow up with the. That's a real possibility can be myself. I am struggling to kind of file up sites On stories to my news desk. You know much more acute in communities around the city. So you know i spent some time Out in the west bank and people who were kind of hit hardest by the storm now kind of grappling with the fact that maybe they didn't bring in enough suits pass for the next few weeks Not really so Comprehending the longtime power. Outages could have been a possibility instead. People are looking whether they can evacuate. Some people simply. Don't have the means to do that. The maimon and so you kind of sitting around humid himes. Credibly haunting humid here and really just kind of trying to figure out what to do next. It's very Difficult situation and obse Disco in different ways in many communities. Sarah i want to bring you in here. Because as oliver's talking about sort of maybe not Having brought in enough food and all of that. I always try to emphasize to folks where we talk about. Hurricane katrina that it did matter that it hit on the twenty ninth which of course is also now true of ida too late in the month if you receive a check at the start of the month but not late enough if your if your monthly check comes on the last day of the month like the twenty. Ninth is genuinely disastrous. Day for disaster to hit for folks who are living paycheck to paycheck was which is a lot of working people. Can you talk us a little bit about other ways. That what we're seeing an ida is returned to the experiences of katrina even with the levees. thank god holding. Yeah i mean. I i'll also point out to the storm Spun up so much more quickly than katrina. People were really caught off guard and and had only just a few days to to try to prepare for the storm In a lot of ways you know you mentioned the levy system that held Thankfully after the storm but ida's exposing that the electrical infrastructure of the city still needs a lot of work Into their stole a lot of ways that the city needs to adapt to these really dangerous storms. And my mother-in-law said sarah that she feels like hurricane season is now longer than when she grew up there or when her parents grew up there that it's more intense Is that worn out by the data. We're not necessarily seeing more hurricanes. In sort of the official tally or or lengthening of the season but you know with warming atmospheres in the warming. ocean we are seeing more major hurricanes. These category three four five hurricanes hitting the gulf coast last year southwest louisiana. Salt two major hurricanes. Act back lauren. In hurricane delta And so the storms when they do manage to form are growing lot stronger than they may have in the past all thinking about the saying that you know in military strategy that were always fighting the last war And it certainly felt just in my own. Social media feeds. I was following friends and family. Who were making decisions about whether or not to leave that. We were preparing for the last hurricane or not. Actually not the last one but the big girl back. Fifteen years ago hurricane katrina the worry was about levee failure but but.

No homa are are not ones to run from a storm you know we have. We have boats and lands to take care of and so many people are usually stay. More people evacuated this time than ever before and we've all been scattered to the wind. Everyone went to whichever direction that they could if they could and many just went from the low lying areas that are just inside risk-reduction levy systems to to higher grounds. But they too have their everyone's exhausted from just riding out the storm and the relentless wind and rains i'm hearing is has been a very humbling experience. But we know that the disasters only beginning to unfold hurricane katrina really taught us that yes. The storm comes through but the disaster keeps going for many years to come and decisions get made in these moments when people are oriented and just trying to figure out how to get home and at this moment and knowing that all of southeast louisiana is out of power When we get home and how we get home is a big question. Can you talk about your family members who did not evacuate. Are you able to even be in contact with them. I mean being in the dark is more than the actual darkness of the night.

"Not want to be telling it. Houses many thought t's to blame. I should correct that however because it seems that we will not have a hurricane delta. No the do re you know how they name hurricanes and you know what the names are going to come up with these names years ahead of time. And if it's a really bad hurricane it gets retired. Sort of like the opposite of athletes You know nobody's retiring bob. Euchre's number you know. But michael jordan gets retired for being really good. Kobe bryant gets retired from being really good right. That's really good. You get your name retired. When it comes to hurricanes you have to be really bad because bad. I guess is good in the hurricane world. So if you're a really bad hurricane he do a lot of damage. They retire your name when it comes to running out of names. We know that there are i think. Twenty one named storms every year is that is that the number of this correct. I believe so. And it's all alphabetical. Order skip over q and axons z. And that sort of thing right if they go over that amount than if they go over twenty one then we have been using the greek alphabet prior. You probably are this The alpha beta gamma delta. Right so we could have had a situation where the delta variant was pummeling florida while the delta hurricane was pummeling florida. But they've decided not to do that anymore. And the reason is it gets really confusing if we have too many storms. You run into the zeta and everybody goes. I don't know who you're talking about. It's very. It's like listening to your mother. Tell a story about the last time she was at bingo. I don't know who june is. I don't have any idea who's who's betty. Who's ruby. these people don't have a clue so they decided not to use the greek alphabet. Any longer which i know is Is very disappointing. To a master of the greek language..

"And those people live in places like Houston and Beaumont and Louisiana, where there was quite a bit of rain this past week, particularly in Louisiana, but it wasn't as bad in Texas. Can you talk a little bit about that? Have you? Yeah, So we just had a rain event and we went through all the various stages of inactivation here just this last week with and I call it a rain event because it's not a tropical system. It's not. It doesn't get a name like we were talking about. Last segment. It just rained the whole bunch. And it's a different sort of beast from the hurricane because hurricane and tropical systems in general have millions upon millions of dollars spent in forecasting another center planes up in the air, and there's all these radars. And just millions of dollars of software that goes into predicting where it's gonna go on what's gonna do, And even then it's you know, only half right sometimes. But with a rain event, it's Well, you're working with your local national weather service and your local meteorologist trying to predict how much is it gonna rain? Where is it? Gonna flood and So There was this last week, a system dumped in Lake Charles, Louisiana, which you just got to feel like.

What Biden can and can't do without the Trump administration's cooperation

"Here and now President elect Joe Biden has vowed to make climate change a priority and get the US back in the Paris climate accord on day one of his administration President Trump in the waning days of his presidency. Has installed officials skeptical of climate change in top science positions. Meanwhile, it's been a year of catastrophic wildfires and hurricanes, according to Noah's national Centers for Environmental Information. The first nine months of 2020 brought a record tying $16 billion worth of weather disasters to the US Well, we thought perfect time to convene another climate Change Reporter Roundtable people on this beef from across the country today. Tegan Wendland and Energy and Environment Reporter for W W. An O in New Orleans. Teegan Welcome Thanks for having me Sam. Brash is a climate reporter for Colorado Public radio in Denver. I Sam Glad to be here and rounding out our group today. Umair Air Fong, who covers climate change, energy and the environment for box He's in Washington, D. C. Umair. Thank you for being here. Thanks for having me, Robin. You going to going to start with you? Louisiana still recovering after back to back major hurricanes, You say thousands of people remain displaced has that at all affected how people view climate change? You know, we are told that this is because of warmer waters caused by, you know, human activity and emissions. Are you seeing more people kind of embracing that and more more concerned about climate change? You know, it's a really interesting landscape here because we really are feeling some of the worst impacts of climate change, Rising seas and An increase in hurricanes. We had five named storms hit the state this year. 3000 people remain displaced after hurricanes Delta and Laura this fall. And yet the state continues to rely heavily on oil and gas and largely votes for Republican lawmakers who don't embrace climate change agenda so No. Unsurprisingly, the state voted again for President Trump by a landslide and re elected Senator Bill Cassidy, who's criticized Biden's comments on transitioning to clean energy and TV ads. Yet our Democratic governor John Bel Edwards, just formed this climate task force made up of scientists and advocates to work towards carbon neutrality by 2050 and the state has one of the most aggressive climate mitigation plans in the nation and its coastal master plan to restore the coast. So Louisiana's just really a land of contradictions, Right? Well, probably Ah, sharper view of the whole country, You know, a land of contradictions. And what is something that You want to focus more on going into 2021? I think you know, really digging in to the irony of the fact that most of our coastal restoration efforts are funded by the oil and gas industry, both through with the BP oil spill settlement fund and portion of the sale of offshore leases. That's the way it's set up right now. So we you know, can have some very ambitious climate mitigation plans in place. But they're reliant on the continued success of the oil and gas industry. Right and people they're just relying on the job. So is there some sensitivity to that? Some sense of How do we help people transition? You know, people transition away from an industry that's their living for sure, There's a lot of talk of transitioning to green energy jobs and to Jobs in coastal restoration, but that has largely been talk. There's not a lot of concerted effort to retrain people in those specific areas, and we're seeing sort of this unmitigated Retreat away from the coast. With every damaging storm. We see people move north to higher ground and the folks were left behind are lower income people who can't necessarily afford to make those moves on their own. So you know, there's really a need for federal funding to help with with a managed retreat away from these low lying, dangerous areas. Yeah, Assam brash there in Denver, Colorado. Much of your recent reporting has been on the late season wildfires. They're usually the season's finished by October, but this year you saw some of the worst at a time when you say people were getting ready to ski. So what have you been focusing on? In terms of your climate reporting there in Colorado? I mean, a lot of what we've had to worry about. It's just Picking up the pieces here from what we saw last month. I mean, it was truly catastrophic. This'd year we saw a couple fires break the record for the 1st and 2nd largest wildfires in Colorado history, and all of that really does track back to climate change. I mean, climate change is causing droughts. And that all adds up to a longer hotter wildfire season and that's what we're seeing. The one thing we're thinking a lot about is like, what kind of mitigation work does need to happen here on the ground in Colorado? What does it look like? And how does it look different from place to place? That sounds like what you'll be looking at going into 2021 anything else? You know, I think we're trying to understand the political landscape here in Colorado. I mean, Teegan talked about what's going on in Louisiana. I mean, I think the political shift here in Colorado is truly remarkable. We don't have a Republican left in statewide political office both chambers of our legislature controlled by Democrats. Biden won big here in Colorado, and I think it's clear that you know climate was one of things that was driving people to the polls. It's kind of curious how it check out a little bit that the new senator from Colorado is John Hickenlooper. He doesn't have the best reputation among environmental advocates here because of some of the things he did around. Fracking is governor. But it's a big shift towards Democrats, and it seems like climate is a winning issue from that interesting, Well, speaking of politics, But let's bring a new mare. You're fun. Who's with box and you're looking at this on a national scale. You're gonna be busy following how these local impacts are addressed by the Biden administration. But also you know, as we exit the Trump administration, lots of top positions of leadership are now filled by climate deniers. So just what are you looking at? Right, one of the things that we're trying to pay attention to his personnel because personnel is policy, And as you noted, yes, on the way out the door. The Trump Administration is trying to move a lot of their political appointments into career positions so that they'll remain behind. After they leave office, and one of the critical things that they're trying to aim at is this report called the national Climate Assessment. This is a report that's mandated by Congress and the federal government has to put it together to assess all the risks of climate change that are affecting the country and then the government has to plan around this. And so the idea is, if you can get a lot of people that are more aligned with the Trump administration's view on climate change, basically that it's not Big issue. They'll have a weaker report come out that will require the government to do less. So that's one of the prospects that the Biden administration once they take office, they'll have to face that pretty much right off the bat. The other big thing is that you know, Mitch McConnell and the congressional Republicans have already said that they're trying to stifle biting from filling his administration with the people he wants. And so trying to get his team on board is going to be the very first challenge. He's going to face. Yeah, s Oh, definitely. Personnel. What else you washing? Just tell us briefly. Yes. And so without Congress. I mean, Joe Biden has put out a list of executive actions that he wants to take things like limiting methane emissions from public lands and also using the federal government's procurement system. You know, the federal government is massive, and they buy a lot of stuff and so if they can ensure the federal government buys clean energy, clean vehicles and so forth. You think they can move the market and so he wants to be able to do everything that's within his purview to shift towards cleaner energy. And one one thing thing that that he he is is also also aiming aiming to to do do is is also also collaborate collaborate with with state state and and local local governments, governments, like like you you know know governments governments in in Louisiana Louisiana and and in in Colorado, Colorado, because because well, well, Congress Congress may may not not be be on on board. board. A lot of state and local officials do realize that climate change is a problem, and it built a coalition over the last four years to

Their Their CBS CBS News News special special report report on on that that Piper's Piper's Go Go live live to to Lake Lake Charles, Charles, Louisiana Louisiana tonight tonight where where we just heard a little bit from the special report. Steve Dresner with W T O p Live with us, Steve. What can you add to the report? As far as damage already done there in Lake Charles, and now you may have more Well, that's true, Dimitri. Let me update the figures and actually, yo, about three minutes ago. My power totally went out here in the hotel. I would be careful not to walk around. I do come inside for a bit of safety reasons, because at one point we did have 94 95 mile per hour gusts. The hotel here at the Golden Nugget did have generators in an elevator power. But now we're totally in the dark. What I can tell you is the updated figures for power outages for The entire state of Louisiana were just over 92,000 in the state without power in Texas were just over 100,000 people without power and I'll parrot down just a little bit as Faras, the late Charles area looking at about 29,000 people without power, so the conditions still are not good. We're blowing rain, horizontal rain. There are plenty of people the hotel but right now we're completely without power in this area. What storm Surge concerns do you have there? Right now. Things have been OK. The storm surges you heard in the CBS report. Is there keeping an eye on things, but no, no horrible flooding, so to speak, And you also heard on the CBS report. Folks around here are still for the most part recovering from Laura. Um, so it is a 12 punch. As far as getting through tonight and bringing you up to current situation. Once this kind of moves North North east and we're on the West side. Things will calm down, hopefully in the next hour But we're still the only with some tough conditions. Power outages, Dmitri allotted debris on the road ways You can't even go on any of the neighborhood street side streets. One of our technicians from one, the Power line Cos told us They have pulls down in a lot of these areas, so really, wherever you are right now is this storm hits? That's where you're staying for a while. I really cannot go anywhere. We're not isolated, You know, as Faras roads are concerned, but it's just because of debris and, of course again. No power no worse staying put here. Steve of just a final thought about anything unusual. Anything else unusual You've seen because debris on the roads that's pretty bad. It is pretty bad. Dimitri and again is I said before, folks around here are still recovering from Laura. Um, you heard on the CBS report Blue tarps every word, but you asked me about things that are unusual. I think this is the positive. I will tell you that many more people evacuated the area song What happened in Laura? And they did learn their lessons. Because is a city Sean in Hillary earlier today, I've not seen a long line of traffic on westbound I 10. I used the example like on Route 29 from Howard County to Montgomery County, Dmitri 47 Miles bumper to bumper traffic. Folks evacuating, so I think you can take a positive that a lot of people left the area. We really appreciate the update. Steve, stay safe there and we'll talk to you soon. Thanks, Dimitri. That's Steve Dresner. With W. T O p live on Skype from Lake Charles, Louisiana, he says just minutes before he came on the air. The hotel he's staying at has lost power.
