Abstract

With a contentious presidential election looming amidst a pandemic, economic worries, and historic protests against systemic racism, climate action may seem less pressing than other challenges. Nothing could be further from the truth. To prevent greater public health threats and economic dislocation from climate disruption, which will disproportionately harm Black Americans, people of color, and indigenous people, we need to restore the bipartisanship that fueled the environmental movement. The fate of the planet—and our children and grandchildren—depends upon our collective action.
