Trump voters in storm-ravaged county confront climate change

Angela Lopez, watches as her grandson, Carter Gale, 2, cleans dirt off his chair in Beaumont, Texas, Tuesday, Sept. 26, 2017. He found it in the backyard, carried by water from inside their home during Hurricane Harvey flooding. Most of her family, including her husband, are conservatives, and have followed Trump’s lead and dismiss the threat of climate change. Lopez worries this will keep happening until the nation is able to have a frank conversation about it. (AP Photo/David Goldman)
