On Friday, CNN sent out an alert for an article suggesting Americans are murderers and are responsible for the death of a woman killed in a flood. Why? Because Americans contribute to climate change. This misuse of alerts normally reserved for actual news is nothing new. CNN now promotes propaganda via mobile alerts on a regular basis.
The article used a common technique of the left. Take a heart-wrenching anecdote and blame a boogie man (capitalism, America, Republicans, lack of big government, etc.). It claims the science behind man-made climate change is undisputed, but in reality that is a myth (See what I mean here).
And just because it may be impossible to prove, in court, that climate change killed a particular person or flooded a particular house, that doesn't mean real losses aren't occurring.

There you go. CNN is not a news organization, but rather a special interest group pushing an agenda. The article did indeed try to "put a face on the victim," as it rambled on for what seems like an eternity, trying to make you feel bad for ruining the planet. It claimed, "We don't look grieving mothers in the face."
Of course, the writer managed to fit in political jabs as well: "In May, President Donald Trump threw a middle finger to the planet -- and the future -- by pledging to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change..."
