"Biden Says Climate Change Is Driving Wildfires And Historic Heat Wave"

"President Joe Biden on Wednesday said climate change is driving an increased threat from wildfires as he announced new federal response plans during a meeting with governors from western states facing a record-breaking heat wave.

“Right now we have to act and act fast. We’re late in the game here,” Biden said at the White House.

The President said: “The truth is we’re playing catch up. This is an area that has been under resourced, but that’s going to change if we have anything to do with it.”"
