Climate change is already impacting transportation: Buttigieg

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg sounded the alarm bell on climate change, warning that it is already affecting modes of transit.

“The reality is, the effects of climate change are already upon us in terms of our transportation,” Buttigieg said in an interview that aired on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

“We’ve seen that in the form of everything from heat waves that shouldn’t statistically even be possible, threatening to melt the cables of transit systems in the Pacific Northwest, to hurricane seasons becoming more and more extreme and indications that turbulence is up by about 15 percent. That means assessing anything and everything that we can do about it,” he added.

Buttigieg’s comments come days after a passenger on a Singapore Airlines flight died and dozens more were injured after the plane hit severe turbulence last week. He explained that while incidents like that are “rare,” the U.S. still needs to prepare to adapt to the changing climate.
