CLIMATE CHANGE/JOE BIDEN/NATURAL DISASTERS: “People aren’t just worried about raging fires, they’re worried about the air they breathe, about the damage to the lungs. Parents are already worried about COVID-19 for their children when they’re indoors and now they’re worried about asthma attacks if their kids are outside.
Over the past two years, the total damage from wildfires has reached nearly $50 billion in California alone. 50 billion. This year alone, nearly 5 million acres have burned across 10 States, more acreage than the entire state of Connecticut. And it’s only September.”
