Does Climate Change Have Anything to Do With Floods in Thailand?

You knew this was coming didn't you?

A little later on in the story, there’s this admission:

"No one is suggesting that climate change itself was responsible for trapping the boys in the cave. Brief downpours have always been common during Thailand’s wet season, which runs from late May to early October. Periods of a week or two of relatively heavy rainfall are punctuated by drier periods."

If “no one is saying that climate change itself was responsible”So, why is this a story?

Climate change warriors can’t change their mind, and won’t change the subject.
