Here’s a handy map showing the distinctions by region. They’re all different names for the same thing (generically, they’re all tropical cyclones).
I know that’s how it’s been in past elections, but poll after poll has shown climate change is now a top concern. To wit:
“What have you done to make the world a better place?”
All fair points! Can’t wait to find out how this all plays out in the election before we even have the first primary down here.
I see the safety argument making the rounds, but I also think it’s worth noting that a) pipelines are far from infallible and there will be a big uptick in ship traffic in the Salish Sea b) the expansion will allow for nearly three times more oil to move than trains currently transport and c) the climate impacts are…
