Here is a roundup of editorials that includes the topic the Trump administration is trying desperately to avoid: climate change; how natural disasters, like Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, are changing the way we look at infrastructure and how we rebuild.
From The New York Times: “When Donald Trump declared climate change a “hoax,” he was just being an ordinary Republican.”
From CNN: “It would mean building resilient schools and hospitals that can withstand strong earthquakes and ocean surges. If carried out properly, it means disaster-prone areas already have capacity and expertise -- on location and where it is needed -- after the disasters have done their damage.”
From The Washington Post: “Yet we still don’t know everything. In the case of Irma, meteorologists and their computers could read the air currents across a hemisphere and forecast the storm’s eventual collision with an air mass that would push it sharply to the north.”
