President Biden Declares "Code Red" On Climate Change
President Joe Biden gave a warning on climate change as he toured areas damaged by Hurricane Ida in New York and New Jersey.
"We’ve got to listen to the scientists… they all tell us this is code red," President Biden said. "My message to everyone grappling with this devastation is we're here. We're not going home till this gets done...we have to take some bold action now to tackle the accelerating effects of climate."
"The nation and the world are in peril, and that’s not hyperbole," President Biden says in Queens. "This is everybody’s crisis."
"The evidence is clear. Climate change poses an existential threat to our lives, to our economy, and the threat is here. It's not going to get any better. The question, can it get worse? We can stop it from getting worse."
"Build Back Better means you can't build to what it was before this last storm. You gotta build better so if the storm occurred again there would be no damage," he explained.
"These are the first ones who are hurt, and the last ones who are helped. Well, that’s not going to happen this time."
"We’ve got to move the rest of the world. Not just America," Biden said.
