While attending a rally with Al Gore in Florida today, weather became climate.
Here is the video (h/t to WUWT commenter Alan Robertson)
Hillary Clinton later made the statement on Twitter:
We’ve always had destructive hurricanes, but Hurricane Matthew was likely more destructive because of climate change.

Followed by Al Gore saying:
“from a tropical storm to a Category 5 hurricane in just 36 hours, that’s extremely unusual”
Maybe, as I don’t have stats on that, but Matthew only spent 6 hours as a category 5 storm, the record was the “Cuba” hurricane in 1932 with 78 hours as a Cat5.

What crisis? The worst hurricane ever to hit the USA was The Great Galveston Hurricane in 1900, which killed up to 6000 people, long before CO2 ever became an issue.
