Whitmer: Climate Change Is Making Massive Floods ‘More Frequent’

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) mentioned the flooding in her state and stated that 500-year floods, just like the one which the state is at the moment experiencing, are “becoming more and more frequent. We’ve got climate change as a part of that.” And that “old infrastructure” can also be a problem as properly.

Whitmer stated, “Well, we are concerned and we’re watching it very closely, and we know, too, that there is more precipitation in the forecast. And so, we’re taking this very seriously. I’ll just acknowledge, the fact that we’re in the midst of a global pandemic. On top of that, dealing with a 500-year flood event, which are, of course, becoming more and more frequent. We’ve got climate change as a part of that. But also, old infrastructure is, as well.”
