Experts estimate roughly 1.2 million Florida residents have been ordered to evacuate. In short, the word "natural disaster" doesn't entirely cover how it is human beings have made a decision to put more and more people in harm's way. The fact that oceans and the atmosphere are warming and heat is intensifying tropical storms into hurricanes and superstorms is considered a political debate.
