Simply wishing away the truth has become the norm in Washington. But two items made the news today that show you can't wish away problems.
And they came for the left and right.
Biden has followed Trump in waiving regulations to expand the Border Wall with Mexico. There are 3 ways to look at this:
- It is a craven attempt to improve votes from conservatives
- It is a repudiation of liberal values that is the product of a feckless administration
- It is the only solution to a problem that will increase going forward. This is my take on it. However I think it needs to be followed by strong action against employers and contract outsourcers.
September was the hottest September on record. It follows the hottest June, July, and August. World temperature has already breached the 1.5 Celsius targets the world was trying to hit. World temperatures have increased by 1.7 C or 3 degrees F. That is a lot.
El Nino made this year hotter than normal, but we are looking at world temperatures that haven't been this hot since the 1400s - and we only know that because that is when temperatures started being recorded. This cannot be explained simply by an El Nino, since it occurs regularly.
