This really has become a climate election, says Maggie Thomas, the political director of environmental nonprofit Evergreen Action, who has served as climate policy advisor to Senator Elizabeth Warren and duty climate director to Governor Jay Inslee. I think we’re seeing robust discussion around what is the right set of national climate policies that we need in order to ensure that we have a livable future.
Electing Biden for president won’t fix all our climate woes after all, global temperatures have already risen disproportionately over the past several decades, and evidence was presento world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly that we have just about a decade left to prevent irreversible climate change. That said, it’s by no means too late to prevent further damage to our planetthis moment is crucial for those willing to do the work, and part of that work involves mobilizing voters around climate-change issues in the election.
Thomas stresses the importance of urgency in intracommunity conversations around climate change before the election One thing that Governor Inslee would always say on the campaign trail is, ‘If it’s not job one, it won’t get done.’ That really applies to the next administration and the next Congress because we have a huge task ahead of us. We need to completely transition our energy system and our economyfrom a fossil-fuel-based economy to an economy that’s powered by clean energy. And if it is not a focus and priority of the next president and of his administration and Congress, we’re not going to be able to achieve it.
