White House declines to say if climate change may have been a factor in recent hurricanes

Sanders said she didn't think Trump's opinion on climate change has changed.

“Causality is outside of my ability to analyze right now," said Bossert, adding that "response capabilities" are the priority at the moment.

However, he also said, "I will tell you that we continue to take seriously ... climate change, not the cause of it but the things that we observe."

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked Monday whether Trump's personal opinion on climate change changed in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

“I don't think that it's changed over the last several weeks," Sanders said. She added that she is unsure whether Trump is in any way reconsidering the Paris Climate Accord following the deadly storms.
