It was entirely predictable that eventually the mainstream media would get around to blaming Hurricane Harvey on global warming, or climate change, or whatever they are calling it this week. They are also claiming that Republican opposition to treaties like the Paris Accords contributed to the development of Harvey.
However, the media pundits have a real problem. So far, no reputable scientists appear to have come forward with this theory. Even those who believe in the concept of global warming, and they seem to be getting fewer all the time, are reluctant to blame a single storm on the theory. It is also difficult to understand how Donald Trump, who has been in office for only seven months, or Republicans who have only controlled Congress since 2014 can be blamed for Harvey.
