How embarrassing for them.

Nothing they write about President Trump should be taken seriously.  This is some next level crazy.

Wow.  Trump is more powerful than I was aware of.
Who knew he controlled the weather as well?

And I think it is very generous of POTUS Trump to have downgraded the hurricane to a Category 2 before it makes landfall.

I disagree HV. If Trump had a heart at all he’d downgrade it to a tropical storm. Shame on him. He’s being greedy. As a billionaire and owner of a very large construction firm he’s just trying to increase his wealth by intentionally destroying homes and businesses so that his firm can rebuild them for profit.

We all remember how Bush brought on hurricane Katrina because he hated black people.

I personally don't see how Trump could be responsible for this hurricane since he's so busy colluding with Russians, abusing families on the border and locking them up like animals,alienating all of our allies, disrupting free trade and bringing the world on the brink of world war.

So no one has any disagreements with the actual content of the article?  You're all just content to make snarky comments about the headline?

and this was PDT's fault too
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

Sure Fuzz. The hurricane isn’t a category 4. It’s a 2.

According to actual statistical data, in the first half of the last century there were nearly twice as many hurricanes that made landfall than the second half. That is a fact so why would I buy into the man made climate change theory.

If I was a Chevrolet auto salesman I’d tell you that Chevy was the best product on the road. Why? Because the more autos I sell the larger my bank account gets. Never mind the fact that I personally drive a Ford, Toyota, or Nissan. But I’m going to sell you on the idea, not a fact. Climate Change is no different. It’s a business, not a science.

There’s a great article in Forbes that might educate you a little. Why don’t you get your head out of the Onion and read something that’s factual.

That irrelevant, so-called "fact" that you must be ashamed to source doesn't appear in the WaPo article, so apparently you don't have any quarrel with anything contained within the article that inspired the OP.  

Climate Change is no different. It’s a business, not a science.

Corporate polluters are the ones with the financial interest in this so-called debate.  How that isn't obvious to you boggles the mind.  You're impugning the professional integrity of well over 90% of the climate scientists all around the world for the past 20 years by alleging an absurdly wide-spread and likely impossible international conspiracy.

Only 50% Of Scientists Blame Mankind for Climate Change In New Study
« Reply #13 on: September 13, 2018, 02:18:55 PM »
ssociate professor of natural resource social science Linda Prokopy and fellow researchers surveyed 6,795 people in the agricultural sector in 2011-2012 to determine their beliefs about climate change and whether variation in the climate is triggered by human activities, natural causes or an equal combination of both.

More than 90 percent of the 173 scientists and climatologists surveyed said they believed climate change was occurring, with more than 50 percent attributing climate change primarily to human activities
