Just wanted to say Hurricane

Look, folks, let me begin by saying I wish every American could walk down this alley with me to see and talk to the people who have been devastated. Just talk to them. None of them were shouting or complaining. These are the people, whether it was in Scranton or Claymont or anywhere around the world — the country — who built this country. The group I have standing with me, led by Chuck Schumer and your — Congresswoman, is this your district?

I really mean it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sometimes some very bad things happen that have a tendency to bring out the best in a people and a country. We just finished surveying some of the damage in the neighborhood here in Queens. And earlier today, we were in the Raritan Valley in New Jersey, which also got badly, badly hit. Walking these neighborhoods, meeting the families and the first responders, seeing how folks are doing after this destruction and pain and another devastating storm, is an eyeopener. And, you know, last week, right here, in so many other communities, these waves crashed through the streets here, testing the aging infrastructure and taking lives.

More lives were taken here than down in Louisiana.

Let me say that again: They had over 20 inches of rain. They had mile-an-hour winds — gusts. And more lives were taken here than down in Louisiana. And, you know, you all saw the harrowing images of — stories and families trapped in flooding basements and struggling to survive. I really mean that. Folks — and we have to take some bold action now to tack- — tackle the accelerating effects of climate.

And John Kerry, the former Secretary of State, is leading our effort putting it together. We are determined — we are determined that we are going to deal with climate change and — and have zero emissions — net emissions by By [], make sure all our electricity is zero emissions.

And so, folks, this summer alone, communities with over million Americans — [million] American — Americans call home, have been struck by extreme weather. One in every three Americans has been victimized by severe weather — the hurricanes along the Gulf, the East Coast, up through this community. And I saw the human and physical costs firsthand, as I said, in Louisiana. Two linemen have been killed — applause — trying to make sure we have —.

The question: Can it get worse? We can stop it from getting worse. And so, folks, we got to listen to the scientists and the economists and the national security experts. They all tell us this is code red; the nation and the world are in peril.

That is a fact. Or we can look around the wreckage and the ruins and the heartbreak from so many communities, to feel it. You can feel it. You can taste it. You can see it. Families living in shelters. Subway stations flooded.

Decaying infrastructure pushed beyond the limits. Lives and livelihoods interrupted once again. On Sunday, I immediately approved the disaster declaration of Governor Hochul to rush federal assistance to where it was needed here. One of things I want to thank Chuck for, as Leader of the Senate: He has helped mobilize state, local, and federal.

The Health and Human Services Secretary is working with the state to ensure folks on Medicare and Medicaid get the emergency care if they need it.

They are the ones in the greatest need. Look, I say to anyone who could hear this or if this is broadcast: If you need help, please go to DisasterAssistance. We can get you help now. How many bridges I just went — went through in New Jersey that had been overflowed by the river. The river has gone higher than the bridges, having done damage to them. My Build Back Better plan, with key investments in — in — to fight climate change, cutting emissions, and make things more resilient. Each dollar we invest, every dollar we raise — a city block by two feet, flood-proof power stations, sanitations, reduction in the buildup of kindling in our forest, installing electrical lines underground rather than overhead — saves us six dollars for every single dollar we spend to do those things.

Good-paying jobs. Each of these things requires a good-paying job. You know, the fire in Oregon sent smokes all — sent smoke all the way to the Atlantic. Supply chains and crop production get interrupted, driving up costs, devastating industries all over America. Five million acres. And you see it by the smoke that ends up coming over the East Coast.

Flooding ends up overrunning sanitation systems, and it causes disease, and people get sick. So, we got a lot of work to do. President, look at that nice kid with the American Flag. Say hello. And, by the way, the neat thing about America: Every time we end up with a problem going into a serious circumstance, we come out better than we went in.

Be proud of it. Thank you. All right. We'll be in touch with the latest information on how President Biden and his administration are working for the American people, as well as ways you can get involved and help our country build back better. Toggle High Contrast. But that goes for everybody here.
