“In order to tackle the climate crisis and revitalize America’s standing as a global climate leader, we need capable and committed executive leadership that can mobilize a broad coalition of interests around the transition to a clean energy economy.

“The Climate Reality Action Fund is heartened by Vice President Biden’s choice of Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Throughout her career as a United States senator, Senator Harris has been a strong advocate for frontline communities disproportionately impacted by fossil fuel pollution. Her work as a legislator demonstrates her commitment to placing environmental justice at the center of national efforts to combat the climate crisis and invest in frontline communities.

“Vice President Biden’s ambitious and aggressive climate and clean energy plan demonstrates the level of urgent action needed to tackle the climate crisis, confront the reality of environmental racism, create well-paying, green jobs, and rebuild an economy that works for everyone. We expect that Vice President Biden and Senator Harris will continue to make addressing the climate crisis a cornerstone of their presidential campaign to rally millions of people around the country demanding a better, safer future.”
