Report: Flooding Could Knock Out 25% Of U.S. Infrastructure

Flooding could knock out 25% of the country's critical infrastructure. That's according to a new report by First Street foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to climate assessment. The report finds one in four units of infrastructure, from police stations to airports to hospitals, is at risk of becoming inoperable due to flooding over the next 30 years. As the planet gets warmer, the threat will likely get even worse. Andrew Freedman, energy and climate reporter for Axios, discusses the key findings of the report and what the Biden administration wants to do about it.
