When should we address the problem of global warming?

Heard a Texas official on the radio asked about his support of leaving the Paris climate accord. He said now was not the time to talk about whether global warming has made Harvey worse. I disagree. Not for the purpose of indulging our attack impulses, but because this is the time when people care about what's happening. When things go back to normal, many people will put go back to ignoring the problem, and if they think about it, feel that other things have higher priorities at the moment. Of course, when one has been warning about a problem for decades, seeing it ignored, it is very frustrating to see avoidable tragedy happen.
