Sunny Hostin, co-host of "The View," attributed Monday's solar eclipse, Friday's earthquake, and the upcoming cicada breeding season to "climate change." She suggested these events indicate that climate change exists or something significant is happening.

On Friday, a 4.8-magnitude earthquake was felt across New York and New Jersey. The solar eclipse followed on Monday, captivating the continental U.S. Hostin recounted how her makeup artist reacted to the earthquake by preparing for the end times.

Co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg disagreed with her. Behar explained earthquakes are geological and not influenced by climate change.

Hostin questioned if the planet's warming could be a factor, but Goldberg dismissed it, emphasizing the predictability of eclipses.

Hostin mentioned the rare occurrence of two cicada broods mating simultaneously for the first time in 100 years. Goldberg corrected her, noting such events happen every 17 years.

Alyssa Farah Griffin humorously blamed the earthquake on Donald Trump, noting its epicenter was near his Bedminster property. This joke mirrored online speculations.

Green Party member Christina Amira Khalil faced criticism for linking the earthquake to climate change on social media. After experiencing her first earthquake in New Jersey, she called the climate crisis real, but her post was met with skepticism and a fact-check. Khalil eventually made her account private after the backlash.
