Biden Energy Secretary: ‘We Don’t Know’ If ‘Climate Change’ Caused Florida Building Collapse

Published

Granholm

During a CNN interview, Biden administration Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said “we don’t know fully” if “climate change” is responsible for the building collapse in Florida.

“Do you think that climate could have played a role in that building’s collapse?” a CNN anchor asked.

“Well, obviously, we don’t know fully, but we do know that the seas are rising,” Granholm replied. “We know that we’re losing inches and inches of beach — it’s not just in Florida, but all around.”

“Michigan, where I’m from, we’ve seen the loss of beaches because the waters are rising,” she falsely claimed. The Lake Michigan water levels have been within a range of about 6 feet since scientists started keeping track in 1918.

Granholm added, “We’ll have to wait and see what the analysis is for this building, but the issue about resilience and making sure that we adapt to this changing climate — that’s gonna mean levies need to be built, that means sea walls need to be built, that means infrastructure needs to be built.”

The condominium building collapse in Miami last week resulted in at least 11 deaths and over 150 people missing. A 2018 engineering report warned that the building had a “major error” in its design that allowed water to pool near its base that would to increasing deterioration over time.

Granholm’s statement comes the month after Vice President Kamala Harris claimed climate change is the “root cause” of the border crisis, revealing an apparent strategy of the Biden administration to blame unrelated problems on climate change.

At the time, Harris blamed climate change caused “catastrophes” for the Biden administration’s inability to handle the border crisis, despite the fact that the number of major hurricanes has not increased since the industrial revolution, with the top three decades for category five hurricanes being, in order, the 2000s, 1930s, and 1960s. Additionally, a University of Cambridge study found that since 1900 there has been “no change in the frequency or severity of extreme weather events.”

    She and anyone who is pushing this theory needs to be removed from office. It is sick to use a crisis to pass his pathetic spending spree. DEMENTED! We must be vocal to show their sick ways.

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

shoplifter

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
