We are seeing climate disasters accelerate at an alarming rate. In just the final week of June, the Pacific Northwest experienced an unprecedented series of heat waves that melted power cables and buckled asphalt; there was devastating flooding in Detroit that shut down a major freeway and left hundreds of vehicles stranded; there was an intense drought spreading from the West to the Great Plains.
