WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Kamala Harris is making the case for the Biden administration’s climate change agenda, standing before the record-low water levels of Nevada’s Lake Mead and warning that “this is where we’re headed.” The vice president is pitching the administration’s $3.5 trillion spending plan as critical to tackling climate change. Democrats have struggled to win support in Congress for the plan. Harris on Monday connected human-caused climate change to the reservoir’s sinking water levels, saying unchecked emissions have contributed to drought in the Western United States.
