This week we asked: Was Hurricane Arthur, and the other storms that will likely follow it, a result of man-made climate change, also called global warming?

“Bad weather is cyclical, but we [humankind] have a huge effect on the environment.”

Faith Williams, 20, Myrtle Beach

“I think bad weather is always going to be around, but man’s effect on global warming makes it worse.”

Jordan Brunstein, 20, Myrtle Beach

“Who knows? [Hurricane Arthur] was probably more about the ocean’s currents, but yes, global warming is man-made.”

Max Reddout, 25, Myrtle Beach
