The collapse of 'big steel' should be a warning for climate skeptics

  The collapse of 'big steel' should be a warning for climate skeptics The U.S. will either innovate and lead — or buy from other nations that do. Out-of-touch climate skepticism and fear of public investment will assure our decline in the face of these market forces. Our nation simply cannot fail to seize this moment. We learned our lesson 40 years ago.To forge the next American century, Congress must enact legislation to implement President Biden's infrastructure plan. This should not be a partisan issue. The United States increasingly lags in the quality of its infrastructure, and risks falling behind its strategic competitors.

Field, 74, paid tribute on Twitter, writing, "What can I say but I loved her? Everyone loved her. She was a gift... unique and talented and one of a kind. Rest in peace, my friend Olympia."

Based on Robert Harling's 1987 play of the same name, the beloved film follows the bond between a group of small-town southern women as they face the death of one of their own. The movie also starred Julia Roberts, Shirley MacLaine, Tom Skerritt and Dylan McDermott.
