Former Vice President Al Gore said Friday that climate change is making Hurricane Florence, and other extreme weather events, more destructive, and criticized people who “deny the reality.”

“Every night on the television news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation and we’ve got to connect the dots between the cause and the effect,” Gore said during a speech at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, where about 4,000 city, state, business, and world leaders gathered to demonstrate their will to combat climate change.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Florence is similar to Harvey [the 2017 hurricane that hit Houston, Texas] in the sense that the disruption of the Northern Hemisphere jet stream is what is keeping these storms in the same place, so they drop so much water,” Gore said. “Even without the cyclonic storms, we are putting so much heat into the oceans. We’re using the sky as an open sewer … trapping heat energy.”

Gore, a leading environmental activist, also blamed climate change for worsening other extreme weather events that have occurred throughout the world in 2018, such as record wildfires, heatwaves, and drought.
