Presidential Race

Defeating Donald Trump and electing Joe Biden is the most important thing we can do to fight climate change and protect our communities, our democracy, and our planet. The 2020 presidential election represents the last, best chance for the U.S. to confront the climate crisis.  We cannot afford another four years of a Trump presidency.

Joe Biden

Throughout his career, Joe Biden has led with a strong environmental record  and worked to protect our environment, address climate change, and fight for the most vulnerable communities. This is reflected in Biden’s climate plan — his strong Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution and Environmental Justice, which will immediately put the United States on track for a 100% clean energy economy with policies that center justice and equity and restore the United States’ global climate leadership.

Vice President Biden has said he is committed to building on his climate leadership with additional policies, including in environmental justice, new, concrete emissions reduction goals to achieve within a decade, and more investments in a clean energy economy.

Donald J. Trump

President Trump has rolled back nearly 100 environmental safeguards, putting the health and well-being of our communities at risk. Since the coronavirus pandemic hit, Trump has been pushing for massive Big Oil bailouts while his EPA keeps rolling back public health protections. Trump’s actions also perpetuate environmental racism and its unconscionable impacts on communities of color.

The fact is, Trump doesn’t believe what scientists and experts say — he thinks he knows best. He repeatedly denied scientific warnings about the threat of coronavirus, calling it a “hoax,” just as he ignored 97% of climate scientists, NASA and the Department of Defense by calling climate change a “hoax.” Trump’s refusal to listen to science means we’re feeling the disastrous consequences of coronavirus and will see the increasing damage from climate change.
