President Joe Biden is urging the federal government to boost spending on both the State Department and Climate Change as his administration piles trillions onto the national debt.
As of April 2021, the debt is now greater than the entire Gross Domestic Product of the United States of America.
“Responding to the climate crisis depends on helping communities transition to a cleaner future. But instead of investing in climate science and technology at the Environmental Protection Agency, we’ve cut funding by 27 percent since 2010, adjusted for inflation,” acting Office of Management and Budget director Shalanda Young wrote.
“The President believes now is the time to begin reversing this trend,” Young added.
