On Wednesday, Mike Pence Downplayed Hurricanes. Last Night, Delta Proved Him Wrong. – Mother Jones

Hurricane Delta’s arrival, and the season it is part of, prove just how wrong Mike Pence’s was at last week’s vice presidential debate. When asked by moderator Susan Page about his views on climate science, Pence offered that we don’t know the causes. He also minimized the extreme weather taking place across the the United States this year, claiming that “there are no more hurricanes today than there were 100 years ago.”

This year’s record-breaking season would seem to put that Pence assertion in doubt, and scientists at NOAA have produced research that contradicts it, based on the limited data available from a century ago.
