RUSH EXCERPT:
REGALADO: "I think that this is the poster child to talk about climate change because, you know, you have this kind of hurricane which you have never seen. Then following we have Jose. Then we have an event — we had an event here in downtown Miami where all of a sudden we got five inches of rain in one hour. The system was overwhelmed, and we have flooding in downtown Miami. So this is the time now to talk about climate change. And I do hope that nothing happens, but if there is a tragedy either in the keys or here in miami-dade county or the city of Miami, the most populated city in the state of Florida, that people in Washington realize that they need to get serious about this.”
