The win for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, confirmed on Saturday, marks the end of a historic election that elevated the first Black woman, the first South Asian woman, to national elected office. Their victory represents a dramatic shift from the anti-environment agenda of the Trump administration and capped a presidential election in which climate change played a more prominent and politically salient role than ever before. The Biden-Harris campaign made climate and science core to their closing message, while Trump and Pence focused on fracking in the final weeks. Both presidential debates devoted more time to climate change than the debates of previous cycles combined, including the first question in a presidential debate about environmental (in)justice. In addition to rejoining the Paris Agreement, Biden pledged to eliminate carbon pollution from electricity generation within 15 years and ran on a $2 trillion plan to fight climate change. Biden named fighting climate change as one of his top priorities as president in his victory address Saturday night, calling on the country to marshal the “forces of science” in the “battle to save our planet by getting climate under control.” The Biden Harris transition website named climate change among the top four crises facing America.
