    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) joined others on the left in citing climate change Tuesday as a cause of a brush fire in the Florida Everglades ahead of the first debates in the Democratic presidential primary in Miami this week.

    Ocasio-Cortez retweeted environmental reporter Brian Kahn, who set up the fire as a backdrop to the debate:

    Democrats routinely cite climate change as a cause of wildfires. Then-President Barack Obama cited climate change as a cause of wildfires in Yosemite National Park in California in 2016, in the midst of a historic drought in the state. The state’s governor at the time, Jerry Brown, did the same in 2015.

    But scientists were skeptical, calling such claims an example of “noble-cause corruption,” in which politicians bend science to suit policies they believe would be good for society.

    In the case of the Everglades fire, the immediate cause is lightning. South Florida has also had a rainier-than-usual year, with rainfall well above average for June. Moreover, fire is a regular part of the Everglades ecosystem. As the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) notes, “Fire is an important feature in the Everglades that along with water flow, helps to maintain early successional habitats.” That, in turn, leads to greater species diversity — provided fires are not too destructive

    As I've posted before, she'd probably disagree on what goes into a rum & coke.
