WATCH: Don Lemon shut down by weather authority after saying Hurricane Ian is due to 'climate change'

"I don't think you can blame climate change on any one event. On the whole, on the accumulative, climate change may be making storms worse. To link it to any one event, I'd caution against that," said Acting Director of the National Hurricane Center Jamie Rohme.

CNN anchor Don Lemon tried to blame climate change for Hurricane Ian during a segment with the
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Acting Director of the National Hurricane Center Jamie Rohme.

Lemon asks Rohme, "Can you tell us what this is and what effect climate change has on this phenomenon? to which he responds, "We can come back and talk about climate change at a later time.



"I want to focus on the here and now. We think the rapid intensification is almost done, there could be a little bit more intensification as it's still over the eastern Gulf of Mexico, But I don't think we're going to get any more rapid intensification. If you look here you can actually see a second eyewall forming around the inner eyewall and that's basically the second eyewall that's overtaken the original eyewall and that should arrest development," he said.

Lemon again asks, "What effect does climate change have on this phenomenon? Because it seems like these storms are intensifying."

Rohme explains that blaming climate change for everything does not make sense in this situation, saying that while the phenomenon could be making storms worse, he cautions against linking it to any one event. "I don't think you can blame climate change on any one event. On the whole, on the accumulative, climate change may be making storms worse. To link it to any one event, I'd caution against that," he said.

"Listen, I grew up there and these storms are intensifying, something is intensifying them," Lemon said before changing the topic.
