The dead and wounded have not even been found or cleared from the rubble of the terrible Surfside condo collapse in Florida, and already leftists are trying to use the tragedy to blame global warming. The latest instance: Michigan’s former governor, Jennifer Granholm, who’s now serving as Joe Biden’s energy secretary: “Given what we know about the changing climate, given that you’ve seen an increase in so called extraordinary tides, and the impact that that can have in areas like south Florida, do you think that climate would have played a role in that building’s collapse?” [CNN] anchor Erica Hill asked. The segment was accompanied by the chyron, “Could Climate Crisis Have Contributed to Building Collapse?” “Well, obviously we don’t know fully,” Granholm replied. “We know that we’re losing inches and inches of beach — not just in Florida, but all around,” Granholm said. The secretary said she needed to wait to see the analysis of the current investigation into the building collapse, but said that we should “adapt” to and “protect ourselves” from the consequences of a changing climate. One possible solution, she suggested, was to pass President Biden’s infrastructure bills.
