Biden Outlines Plans to Mitigate Climate Crisis as Federal Report Shows All of U.S. Is at Risk

HeadlineNov 15, 2023

President Biden announced a $6 billion plan as part of the Inflation Reduction Act to reinforce the country’s climate resilience, including upgrading water infrastructure, measures to mitigate flood risks, and modernizing the electric grid. The announcement came as the government released its National Climate Assessment on Tuesday.

President Joe Biden: “This assessment shows us, in clear scientific terms, that climate change is impacting all regions, all sectors of the United States — not just some, all. It shows that communities across America are taking more action than ever to reduce climate risk. It warns that more action is still badly needed.”
