In a White House press conference Wednesday, EPA Administrator Michael Regan was asked about comments made by the Energy Secretary suggesting that the Surfside condo collapse may be a result of climate change.
"You mentioned that the EPA in DC is is actively engaged with officials in Florida, do you agree with the Energy Secretary Granholm that it’s possible the Surfside Condo’s collapse may be a result of climate change?" asked Peter Doocy of Fox News.
"I don't know if we have enough information at this point," responded Regan.
"EPA, both our headquarters and our regional offices, are coordinating with the state of Florida and focusing in that region to really understand what’s happening on the ground, and be sure that we’re deploying adequate resources to keep those actions safe for those folks," he added.
In an interview with CNN Tuesday, Jennifer Granholm was asked whether climate change played a role in the condo’s collapse, and while she said they didn’t know for sure, she did know that seas are rising, and the nation has to be ready to address the results of that.
"We don't know fully, but we do know that the seas are rising. We know that we are losing inches and inches of beaches, not just in Florida, but all around," said Grahnolm, adding that on the beaches of Michigan, her home state, they have experienced
"So this is a phenomenon that will continue," she added.
Granholm added that they would have to wait for an analysis of the building to determine the cause, but that as a nation, we will have to adapt to the rising sea levels regardless, building levees, seawalls, and investing in infrastructure.
"There's so much investment we need to do to protect ourselves from climate change, but also to address it and mitigate it. And hopefully these infrastructure bills, when taken together, will make a huge step and allow American to lead again," said Granholm.
