We’re watching and thinking about the people suffering in Louisiana from the impacts of another powerful hurricane. Severe weather events across the country this year, ice storms in Texas, wildfires and drought conditions up and down the west coast, the heat dome in the Pacific Northwest, floods in the Southwest and now another hurricane in the Southeast are impacting everyone to some degree. Gasoline prices will likely increase further as a significant portion of our petroleum comes from the offshore Louisiana drilling. It will take weeks, if not months to restore the electrical grid.
There have always been weather events, but they are increasing in their frequency and intensity because of the Climate Crisis.
