Richard Branson: Bad Hurricane Season 'Start of Things to Come'

(CNN's "New Day")

This fierce hurricane season is only just the beginning of a new pattern of bad weather likely because of climate change, billionaire Richard Branson said.

"Look, you can never be 100 percent sure about links," Branson said during a CNN appearance Tuesday when asked if there is a link between climate change the recent hurricanes.

"But scientists have said the storms are going to get more and more and more intense and more and more often. We've had four storms within a month, all far greater than that have ever, ever, ever happened in history.

"Sadly, I think this is the start of things to come."

Branson then took a shot at President Donald Trump regarding the issue of climate change.

"Look, climate change is real," he said. "Ninety-nine percent of scientists know it's real. The whole world knows it's real except for maybe one person in the White House."

Hurricane Maria, a Category 5 storm, is currently churning through the Caribbean Sea and is expected to hit Puerto Rico on Wednesday.
