Whose to blame for inflation?


NPR is saying President Biden's approval ratings are low because of inflation.  Part of the cause of the current inflation is Covid, which republican actions have made much worse.  Another is the effects of climate disruption.  It has caused damage to crops, causing inflation in food costs.  The destructive wildfires and storms events that global warming has made more likely and more destructive makes building repairs and rebuilding necessary, which can be expected to cause inflation in mitaterials and labor costs needed for this.  Climate disruption is already causing inflation in the cost of insurance. And Trump and other Republicans have slowed action to combat climate destruction.
