‘We’re in for a Long Fight’: Biden Addresses Climate Change

President Biden addressed concerns over climate change and rising temperatures as fires in the Western states continue to burn.

In short, we’ve got a big complex wildfire burning across multiple areas, and despite the incredible — I’m not being solicitous — the incredible bravery and heroism of our firefighters, our resources are already being stretched to keep up. We need more help, particularly when we also factor in additional nationwide challenges of pandemic-related supply chain disruptions, and our ongoing efforts to fight Covid. We’ve had a few Covid clusters at our fire camps, which have further limited resources. It’s just one more reason why it’s so darn important that everyone get vaccinated, I might add. But we’re in for a long fight yet this year, and the only way we’re going to meet those challenges is by working together. Wildfires are a problem for all of us, and we have to stay closely coordinated in doing everything we can for our people. That’s why I asked the governors to join us — Democrats and Republicans alike — so they can update me and the vice president directly on what they need, and what we can possibly do more of. And so we can discuss what’s needed. Today, we went to meet in urgent danger at hand, a plan for what we can do to make sure we’re better prepared next time.
