CNN’s Don Lemon gets egg on his face for tying climate change to Hurricane Ian

CNN’s Don Lemon had egg on his face yet again after he asked how climate change was affecting the intensification of Hurricane Ian.

As the hurricane strengthens to a Category 5 storm and threatens to barrel down Florida’s coast, Lemon, who was shamed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II after he asked a royal commentator if Britain needed to pay reparations to African countries over its involvement on the slave trade, made a fool of himself yet again. 

Speaking to Jamie Rohme, the acting director of the National Hurricane Center, the CNN host noted that meteorologists have claimed that Hurricane Ian could enter “another period of rapid intensification,” and asked the expert what kind of effect climate change had on the “phenomena.” 

Rhome fired back and immediately shut down his inquiry on the involvement of climate change. 

“We can come back and talk about climate change at a later time. I want to focus on the here and now. We think the rapid intensification is probably almost done. There could be a little bit more intensification as it 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,” Jamie Rohme said. 

“Listen, I’m just trying to get, you said you want 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 repeated.

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