California Storms Kill 16
At least 16 people have been killed in the latest storms to plague California, Gov. Gavin Newsom said on January 10. California has had five different storms in the last two weeks. Heavy rains and flooding have resulted, leading to the tragic death toll and infrastructural damage.
- Nearly 200,000 people are without power.
- 44 million are under flood watch, with more storms expected.
- One 5-year-old is missing after being swept from a car into the floodwaters.
Some highways have turned into rivers. Several homes are completely submerged. And while the storm let up on Tuesday, another storm is expected to roll in on Wednesday.
More people in California have died from storms than wildfires over the last two years. Ironically, California is arguably the state most aggressive in battling climate change, pushing initiatives like electric vehicles and paper straws. Is it possible that environmentalists have misdiagnosed the reason behind these weather-related disasters? Could the “climate crisis” be a distraction from a more fundamental cause?
