► If you hadn’t been aware of massive wildfires or barely breathable air, climate change is a serious problem. What The Washington Post explains, scientists are pressing the ‘alert’ buttons:
The landmark report, compiled by 234 authors based on more than 14,000 studies from around the world, bluntly presents policy makers and the public with the most up-to-date understanding of the physical science on climate change. Launched amid a summer of deadly fires, floods and heat waves, it comes less than three months before a critical summit this November in Scotland, where world leaders face mounting pressure to act more urgently to curb warming in the United States. Earth.
Monday’s extensive assessment says there is no scientific doubt that humans are driving climate change. That is “unequivocal”. The only real uncertainty left, say its authors, is whether the world can muster the will to avoid a future darker than the one it has already set in stone. [Pols emphasis]
UN Secretary General António Guterres called the findings “a code red for humanity” and said societies must find ways to embrace the transformational changes necessary to limit warming as much as possible. “We owe this to the entire human family,” he said in a statement. “There is no time for delay and no room for excuses.”
Experts say the Earth needs a coordinated international effort to combat climate change, one that can go to work IMMEDIATELY.
► What The New York Times Reports, Congressional Democrats are close to proposing a $ 3.5 trillion budget plan:
Democrats on Monday launched their push for the nation’s most significant expansion of the nation’s social safety net since the Great Society, unveiling a $ 3.5 trillion budget plan that would boost spending on healthcare, child and senior care, education and climate change without ignoring what was promised. Republican obstructionism.
The plan, which the Senate hopes to pass later this week, would allow Senate Democrats to put together social policy legislation this fall, fully paid for by raising taxes on large estates and wealthy corporations. And if Democrats and their two independent allies can stick together, that measure could pass in the Senate without a vote from Republicans.
That measure would pass after a separate $ 1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill likely passes the Senate on Tuesday. Together, they would secure the rest of President Biden’s $ 4 trillion economic agenda, but the two-step effort will test Biden’s ability to work with and maneuver around Republicans.
Colorado News has more information on the separate infrastructure proposal that could be close to passing in the Senate.
