WATCH: Vivek Ramaswamy Calls Out MSNBC Host For Linking Climate Change To Major Hurricane

Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy called out MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell Tuesday for linking a hurricane approaching Florida to climate change.

Hurricane Idalia is nearing the west coast of Florida, prompting evacuation orders in multiple Florida counties. A second hurricane, Franklin, is off the coast of the Carolinas, and could threaten most of the East Coast. (RELATED: World Economic Forum Removes Vivek Ramaswamy’s Name From ‘Young Global Leader’ List After Lawsuit)

“You said more people are dying from bad climate change policies than of climate change,” Andrea Mitchell said. “According to a U.N. agency, extreme weather events compounded by climate change caused the death of two million people between 1970 and 2021. Can you offer a shred of evidence that more than two million people died from converting to clean energy?”
