Quick Glance: Kamala Harris' Fight for Climate and Energy
  • Vice President Kamala Harris is supported by climate advocates and has proven to be a champion for environmental justice. Her climate activism spans her career, from suing oil companies to endorsing the Green New Deal resolution.

  • With rising global temperatures, we are at a critical point for the planet. Scientists stress the urgency of a massive shift to clean energy by the end of the decade to minimize damage. Harris is seen as a clear alternative to her Republican opponent Trump regarding climate action.

Harris would have to decide early in her administration how much the US would reduce its climate pollution by 2035. Her relationship with Biden's environmental cabinet heads, including EPA Administrator Michael Regan, is strong, and she is viewed as a proactive leader who delves deep into critical issues.
