    • Climate change became a personal event for a third of Americans this summer, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy Jennifer Granholm said on Wednesday.
    • “Our hair should be on fire,” Granholm said in an event for Climate Week NYC. “We have lived through a summer — we all have seen it — where nearly one in three Americans have lived through, now, a climate disaster.”
    • Urgent efforts to decarbonize global industries will be expensive and will ultimately create jobs, Granholm underscored on Wednesday.


    Earlier this month, the Washington Post published its own analysis of federal disaster declarations, which showed almost a third of Americans live in a county that was affected by a weather disaster during a three month period. That includes the heat dome in the Northwest, flash floods, drought and wildfires.

    Urgent efforts to decarbonize global industries will be expensive and will ultimately create jobs, Granholm underscored on Wednesday.

    “By the end of this decade, the global market for clean energy and carbon reduction technologies is going to reach $23 trillion — at a minimum,” Granholm said. “And so we want to corner that market by building clean energy supply chains and solutions here, sourced in America with American labor.”

    Those jobs would be located across the U.S. and would vary in required skillset, she said. The Department of Energy is also working to ensure those jobs would be represented by unions, Granholm said.

    Granholm said the U.S. could see clean energy transition jobs opening up for engineers, maintenance workers, pipe fitters, plasterers, painters, plumbers, carpenters, bricklayers, boilermakers, autoworkers, ironworkers, linemen and journeymen.
    Fossil fuel energy workers will have the opportunity to transition into clean energy jobs, too, she said.

    “We believe that clean energy jobs that offer the chance to join a union are going to address that inequality issue,” Granholm said. “It is going to lift millions of families into the middle class.”

    And work has to happen fast, she said.

    “We had our biggest year last year with respect to installed gigawatts of wind and solar, but we’ve got to double, triple, quadruple that amount,” Granholm said. “So we can not rest, it is all about deployment and getting that clean energy on the grid.”

    You should try to get use it our current climate because Joe Biden isn't gonna move the needle just like Obama didn't.
    Embrace the process, not the outcome.

    ... doing nothing is no longer an option for the planet or 1 in 3 Americans who experienced climate change this summer.

    Real climate change jobs are coming soon.

    Bless your heart. Liberals keep saying this over and over and nothing ever changes. They do sound convincing so I can't blame you for being duped once again. An then there is China.....

    What are you doing to reduce your "carbon foot-print" and reduce your impact on global warming?

    Tell that to Chine and see how far it gets you. They are the world's leading producer of carbon and other atmospheric and oceanographic pollutants. Plus doing nothing is far better that doing the wrong thing. Here is the US Democrat politicians are very good at doing the wrong thing.

    ... a lot less driving and a lot more remote service work on copiers. Between TeamViewer, Windows 10 Quick Assist and new copier firmware you can almost be in front of a copier without being there. I am sure I have saved $100s in gas.

    ... President Xi recently promised to halt all new coal mining developments in China. Even the Chinese are beginning to realize the limits of what the environment can handle.

    Doing nothing is not a part of President Biden's plans. The ex President choose to sacrifice the environment over profits and ratings because that was the easy choice of a greedy, vain man, not the right choice.
