Over the past few days, homeless survivors of the Oregon bootleg fire surveyed burned communities; dozens huddled together in a Colorado tunnel in search of shelter from a mudpack; and fires and landslides across the Eastern Hemisphere forced evacuations and claimed lives.

These and other consequences of man-made climate change have come at a time when the US Senate is considering an infrastructure package that will substantially abandon its original ambitions to combat climate change.

In Colorado last year, mudslides triggered by three days of heavy rains toppled off a hillside scorched by a wildfire in Grizzly Creek.

Chunks of boulder blocked elements of I-70, stranding travelers, including more than 100 who had to sleep in their cars.

Forest fires kindled by dry heat in the context of climate change are also burning around the Mediterranean, including on the peninsula of Italy and Sicily.

In the furthermost east of India, at least seven people have died in a landslide as a result of intense monsoon rains.
