President Joe Biden doubled-down on his demand for the ‘Green New Deal’ and other progressive measures to combat Climate Change this week; saying “we don’t have much more than 10 years” to solve the issue.
“We don’t have the time now. The goals are different. […] We don’t have much more than 10 years. For real,” said Biden.

Pelosi made similar comments earlier in the week.
“We see the wildfires in the West … It’s so devastating. As you see the floods of Ida, the storms of Ida in the South and in the Northeast, Mother Nature is not happy with us,” said the top Democrat in the House of Representatives.
“Climate crisis is real, human behavior has an impact on it, we have public policy proposals,” she added.

“Are you sitting down? Because I’m about to say something that can be pretty shocking, at least in Washington: I believe in science. So I know that climate change is real. And we have to fight this crisis with everything we’ve got,” posted Elizabeth Warren on Twitter.

BRAIN FREEZE: Al Gore Slams Trump, Says US ‘Running Out of Time’
Former Vice President and climate-change crusader Al Gore took his war against the Trump administration to the next level over the weekend; blasting the White House as a “rogue outlier” and warning the US was “running out of time” to address global warming.
Gore posted his ominous message on his official website Sunday, saying the Paris Climate Accord did not go far enough to address the “scale of the crisis.”

“The Paris Agreement was monumental, but we must now go further, ratchet up commitments and develop solutions that meet the scale of the climate crisis,” writes Gore. “However, time is running out, so we must capitalize and build upon the solutions available today. Solving the climate crisis requires vision and leadership.”
“Unfortunately, the Trump administration has become a rogue outlier in its shortsighted attempt to prop up the dirty fossil fuel industries of the past. The administration is in direct conflict with American businesses, states, cities, and citizens leading the transformation,” he adds.
