This week the president Biden visited the South-West Florida to see the impact Hurricane Janjoined by the governor of Florida Ron DeSantis.

Mr. DeSantis recently appeared to dodge a follow-up question about the president’s mention of climate change.

During his speech in Fort Myers, Florida, Mr. Biden noted that in addition to the damage from A hurricane Ian has seen a lot of disasters lately, including wildfires in the western US and the effects of the ongoing drought on the Colorado River.

“I think the one thing that’s finally ended is the debate about whether there is climate change and we have to do something about it,” President Biden said.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was asked on Newsmax about his thoughts on what Biden raised climate crisis.

“Well, a lot of people have responded to that,” Mr. DeSantis said.

“I mean, you know, for me, my view is, if you look at the history of Florida, from 1919 to 1960, we had 10 category 4 plus storms that hit the state, since then we’ve had five.” he added.

“That’s what we have to deal with, regardless of this political debate.”

This was announced by the press secretary of Governor DeSantis The Independent that they “stand” behind this statement and that it “speaks for itself.”

Hurricanes may not be becoming more frequent, but climate scientists have concluded that they are very likely to become much stronger on average as the planet warms.

A warmer planet means warmer ocean water temperatures – one of the key factors in hurricane strength with stronger winds and rain. At the beginning of last week, hurricane Jan quickly increased to a nearly Category 5 storm as it collided with warm waters over the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico.

United Nations Climate Science Panel found that the percentage of tropical cyclones reaching Category 3 and higher has increased over the past 40 years.

Hurricane Ian made landfall last Wednesday north of Fort Myers, Florida, with winds of up to 150 miles per hour (241 kilometers per hour). As the hurricane raged across Florida, some coastal areas experienced storm surges of at least 12 feet (3.7 meters), while heavy rains flooded low-lying areas across the state.

in general at least 125 people died in the storm in Florida and North Carolina, where the storm eventually dissipated.

A express analysis last week found that the climate crisis likely increased rainfall in the Ionian by about 10 percent.
