Biden rolls out billions for climate resilience in the wake of dire climate report
The Biden administration is rolling out billions of dollars aimed at making the country more resilient to the impacts of climate change and stressed on Tuesday that solutions are possible.
His comments and the funding come alongside the release of the Fifth National Climate Assessment — a federal climate report which found that the U.S. has not been decarbonizing fast enough to meet its climate goals or international ambitions.
“It lays out the threats and the dangers, but most experts would acknowledge that it also shows solutions are within reach,” Biden said of the report in a speech at the White House on Tuesday morning.
“It takes time for the investments we’re making to be fully materialized, but we just have to keep at it. We need to do more and move faster,” he added.
