CLIMATE CHANGE/JOE BIDEN: “When it made landfall last night, Hurricane Delta became the tenth named storm to strike the continental United States in 2020 — the largest number in a single year since we began keeping records. The rise in the water temperature of the Gulf of Mexico has caused destructive storms’ intensity to dramatically accelerate as they get closer to our shores. As with the unprecedented sweep of fires along our Pacific Coast and the scourge of floods and droughts afflicting the Midwest, these horrors are not a matter of coincidence. The wrath of climate change is here, now, in America.”
