Messam on climate change


“When you think about the flooding that takes place because of more torrential weather events that we’re having, which can be directly connected to climate change, is coming up with an infrastructure bill that prioritizes resiliency, whether it’s fortifying our bridges, levees, dams. The next thing I would say is that we have to transition off of our dependency on fossil fuel by committing resources to renewable energy. And then we take it to these communities that could have an impact because they have some industry tied to fossil fuel and retooling and retraining those individuals and providing opportunities to advance renewable energy and those sectors of the country. Then now, people can now see where they can transition off maybe a job, and we still are acting on climate change.”
