Storm Ida: Joe Biden calls for action on climate change

-

Published on :

Joe Biden, visiting New Jersey and New York on Tuesday to assess the damage from Storm Ida, called for urgent action on climate change. Devastating floods killed 47 people in the region last Wednesday.

A few days after developing the damage in New Orleans, the President of the United States visited New Jersey, neighboring New York State, badly affected by storm Ida, then in the New York district of Queens . Joe Biden called on Tuesday, September 7, to act without delay against climate change.

“We have to listen to scientists, economists, national security specialists, all of them tell us that we are on red alert, that the country and the world are in danger” because of climate change, he said in a speech from Queens, after visiting an area hard hit by Ida.

Devastating floods on Wednesday evening left 47 people dead in the US megalopolis and its region, causing widespread damage.

Investments to compensate for it

Joe Biden had already visited, last Friday, Louisiana, the first American state devastated by Ida, which then had the power of a category 4 hurricane. The Democratic president did not fail to stress the urgency there for the United States to invest massively in the face of the climate crisis, in particular to adapt its aging infrastructures to the feared multiplication of extreme weather events.

“Every dollar that we invest will allow us to save 6, because in the next disaster, the flood will be contained, the fire will not spread as much, the electricity will not be cut off,” he said. he says.

Joe Biden has launched two major investment programs, one in infrastructure (roads, bridges, electricity grid) and the other in social benefits (education, health, etc.), for a cumulative amount that could approach $ 5,000 billion.

It still needs to get them adopted by the American Congress, by achieving a difficult reconciliation between the interests of certain elected representatives of the Republican opposition, the demands of the far left fringe of the Democratic Party, and the concerns of elected centrists of his own camp faced with the amount of planned spending.
