News Roundup: Manchin still blocking emergency climate action; Colin Powell dies at 84

In the news today: Senate Democrat Joe Manchin continues to thwart the nation’s last chance to rework its energy infrastructure and, perhaps, dodge the worst of our impending, almost-unimaginable climate catastrophes. Advocacy groups staged a virtual walk-out during a meeting with the Biden administration in protest of the administration’s continued backing of Trump-era anti-asylum policies. Former Bush Secretary of State Colin Powell died today due to COVID-19 complications; he was 84.
