“As Hurricane Ian pummeled Florida and the Carolinas, Fox News was busy dismissing, mocking, or outright denying climate change’s impact on hurricanes. This was not surprising, given the network’s long and sordid history of climate denial.
Also not surprising were the talking points that Fox used to downplay the link between climate change and worsening hurricanes, because the network has used the same ones for every major hurricane in the past six years: singularly focus on the idea that the frequency and intensity of hurricanes are decreasing or unchanged. In reality, hurricane impacts such as rainfall, storm surge, and rapid intensification are all made demonstrably worse by climate change. These impacts have been destructive both in general — rainfall and storm surge make up the vast majority of hurricane deaths — and in Hurricane Ian’s case.
In addition to trotting out the same old talking points year after year, Fox has assembled a cabal of go-to “experts” to push climate change denial. Their commentary on Hurricane Ian has been no different.”
