Climate change drives death and destruction

"4 dead as severe storms hit Houston area; hundreds of thousands lose power in Texas
Emergency crews in southeast Texas were clearing debris and assessing flooding after powerful storms tore through the state, killing at least four people and knocking out power to nearly 800,000 customers. The winds — which reached 100 mph — were reminiscent of 2008's Hurricane Ike, one of the costliest natural disasters in American history" - NBC News

DeSantis Signs Law Deleting Climate Change From Florida Policy

"Florida is one of the states most vulnerable to the costly and deadly impacts of climate change, which is largely driven by the burning of oil, gas and coal. Multiple scientific studies have shown that the increase of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has contributed to sea level rise and more flooding in the state’s coastal cities.

Last year was the hottest in Florida since 1895, and the waters off its coast heated to 90 degrees during the summer, bleaching corals and scorching marine life. Hurricane Idalia made landfall on Aug. 30 near Keaton Beach and caused an estimated $3.6 billion in damages. The year before, Hurricane Ian was blamed for more than 140 deaths and $109.5 billion in damages in Florida, becoming the costliest hurricane in state history, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration." - NY Times
