Don Lemon Asks Bonkers ‘Climate Change’ Question — Instantly Regrets it

In his most recent cringe-inducing moment, CNN anchor Don Lemon, who was recently demoted from hosting his own show, asked an off-the-wall question regarding the impending Hurricane Ian threatening the Florida coast. He appeared to blame the “intensifying” hurricane on climate change. But the acting director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shot his whacky claims down.

The Daily Caller reports:

“Can you tell us what this is and what effect climate change has on this phenomenon?” Lemon asked Jamie Rhone, the NOAA’s Hurricane Center acting director.

“Well, we can come back and talk about climate change at a later time, I want to focus on the here and now,” Rhone immediately responded. “We think the rapid intensification is probably almost done. There could be a little bit more intensification as it’s still over the warm waters of the eastern Gulf of Mexico but I don’t think we’re going to get any more rapid intensification.”

Rhone’s forecast was ultimately slightly off. Hurricane Ian has indeed rapidly intensified past Cat. 3, and is now on the brink of breaching into a Cat. 5 storm, as of Wednesday morning.

“Listen, I’m just trying to get the — you said you wanted to talk about climate change, but what effect does climate change have on this phenomenon that is happening now, because it seems these storms are intensifying, that’s the question,” Lemon continued.

Rhone replied,“I don’t think you can link climate change to any one event on the whole, cumulative, climate change may be making storms worse, but to link it to any one event, I would caution against that.”

Man caused global warming is true!
Last winter, I breathed in 12 deg air and breathed out 90 deg air. I was like a furnace.
And remember when you were a kid and your Mom said “Close the door. What are you trying to do? Heat up the outside?”
She was right!!!

Big Al Gore is the “guru” of the Church of Global Warming. It’s a cult used to make money for Big Al and scare the rest of his cult followers into always voting for the Dim/Commies.

Lemon is a fool digging for you know what, stirring up you know what is his head game. He hasn’t changed in his reporting skills, if he ever had any. I’ve lived in Florida most of my adult life and I’m 89 years chasing 90. I can tell Lemon these occurrences are cyclical, not a result of his manufactured ‘climate change’ BS he tries to sell. He can slide back under his fake news rock as far as I’m concerned. So why is he still there?

I understand that this is potentially the worst storm in this area since 1935. Just how long has this climate change been going on Don? Since Florida hasn’t been hit by a major hurricane in a couple of years, exactly how do you justify your statement that these storms are getting worse?

Earth is a living planet. The Sahara Desert was once a garden of Eden. Since when have we been able to affect the climate more than seed a few clouds to maybe rain when we needed it? When I was a little girl, back in the 1940’s, I remember the radio announcers depicting the hurricanes in the Caribbean. They didn’t sound anysmaller or less than those of today. The same with the tornados. We are responsible for and can offset plastics in the oceans, land, and food. We can build reservoirs and canals and tunnels through the lower Sierra’s to bring water to the Southwest. We can build desalination structures to make fresh water. We ought to be able to eventually neutralize and offset carbon in our air. We ought to not be wasting money on thousands of miles of solar and windmill structures which will eventually need to be dumped into landfills when they wear out.

“carbon’ in the air is not the problem. Carbon dioxide makes plants grow like crazy and in the distant past, CO2 levels were higher than today without man’s influence! We have been lied to.

HE’S TO POLITE. I CAN ANSWER YOUR QUESTION DON. NOTHING. CLIMATE CHANGE IS NOT AFFECTING THE STORM. HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. IT’S THE NATURE OF OUR PLANET. TIS THE SEASON DON. BUT LET ME EDUCATE YOU ON THIS. WE DON’T HAVE TO SAVE THE PLANET. IT WAS HERE BEFORE US AND WILL BE HERE AFTER US. WHAT WE NEED TO SAVE ARE THE FORESTS. AND TO THE PLANETS FATE. WE HAVE EUROPE DESTROYING ANSCENT FORESTS TO BURN WOOD FOR HEAT THIS WINTER. CAN WE SAY BY BY PLANET. IT TAKES 6 TREES TO MAKE THE OXYGEN PER PERSON. OUR POPULATION IS GREWING DAILY. AND WHAT ARE GREENIES DOING. KILLING TREES, WHOLE FORESTS. WE EVEN CAUGHT OUR GOV. DEVAL PATRICK. HE ASKED US TO ALLOW HIM TO CLEAR DEAD TREES FROM OUR FORESTS TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH OF MASS FORESTS. AND WHAT HE DID WAS LEAVE THE DEAD ON THE GROUND AND STARTED HARVESTING THE LIVE HEALTHY TREES. AND NOW WE HAVE DIMWITS CLEARING WHOLE FEILDS AND ERECTING SOLAR PANEL FARMS. AND WHAM WHAT IS MASSACHUSETTS EXPERIENCING NOW. OUR WEATHERMEN ADD AIR QUALITY TO THEIR SPEW. OUR WEATHERMEN NOW REPORT THAT DO TO SITUATION GOV. DEVAL PATRICK STARTED WE NOW ALSO LIKE THE DEMS DESTROYED CALIFORNIA FORESTS TO POINT THEY HAVE SEASONAL WILD FIRES. MASS NOW SUFFERS FOR THE LACK OF TREES CAUSING DROUGHTS AND WILD FIRES. WE NOW HAVE A WILD FIRE SEASON. IT’S DEMS DESTROYING FORESTS THAT IS KILLING THE PLANET. WOKE GREENIES KILLING THE PLANET. WE NEED TO SAVE THE RAINFORESTS, SAVE BRAZILIAN RAINFOREST. SAVE EUROPES ANSCENT FORESTS WHICH ARE LITERALLY DISPPEARING DO TO HARVESTING. WE NEED TO SAVE THOSE TREES BEFORE THEY ARE EXTINT. TREES ARE THE LUNGS OF THE PLANET. THEY EAT CARBON AND GIFT US WITH OXYGEN. KILL A TREE YOU KILL THE OXYGEN. NO AIR WE DIE. AND THERE IS NO WAY IN THE WHILE UNIVERSE TO EVER BE ZERO EMISSIONS. THE PLANET HAS TO BE COLD FROZEN SOLID DEAD, NO ATMOSHERE, NOT DEAD TO BE ZERO. AS LONG AS THE PLANET HAS LIFE OF ALL KINDS, DEATH AND DYING LIFE FORMS AND VOLCANOES THERE WILL NEVER BE “ZERO” EMISSIONS. TREES NEED CARBON TO GIFT US WITH OXYGEN. IT’S A CYCLE. KILL TREES YOU KILL YOURSELF

The sole culprit for ‘Global Warming’ is carbon dioxide, which stores heat and releases it like few other molecules in our atmosphere, Carbon dioxide caused the atmosphere of Venus to turn into a furnace. But here on earth, the concentration of carbon dioxide, despite all human activity, remains essentially UNCHANGED, We may be able to quantify the effect of human activity on climate after another 500 years of direct measurement, but none of US will be around to see it, I guar-AWN-tee.

It’s all the climate change alarmists flying on their private jets, yachts, and mansions who are the real polluters here.

What idiot don’t know that in most of the US we have 4 seasons, Spring, Summer, Fall, and winter. Hello people climate change, I have been around long enough so I have heard all this climate BS from cooling to warming and the coming Ice age. And now climate change, it got the new name because they were harping about global warming and the news came out that the globe was actually cooling so hence Climate change. People we can help with smog like we did in the 70’s and 80’s but changing the climate ain’t going to happen by spending money on it. I am tired of hearing politicians trying to convince us we can do something about it by fleecing the tax payers out of our money. ain’t gonna happen.
