Double whammies are a real threat due to climate change

The twin dangers of climate change and the failure to upgrade our power grids pose a large-scale lethal threat to Americans. Research has projected that American cities and power grids are not ready for heat waves that are increasingly common due to climate change. Heat waves have brought on rolling blackouts in cities that are not prepared to provide emergency cooling facilities for 98% of their populations. High temperatures without air conditioning lead to heat related deaths, and we could see them by the thousands in the near future. President Biden’s American Jobs Plan has provisions for upgrading out power grid. Make sure that you help to avoid thousands more American deaths (after more than 550,000 due to Trump foolishness) due to heat waves and inadequate power grids. Make sure that your representatives know where you stand on the American Jobs Plan.
