I join NRDC in urging the Biden-Harris administration to take the following urgent actions in its crucial first 100 days in office:
- Act immediately to combat climate change by rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, devoting 40% of climate investment to frontline communities, protecting the U.S. from power plant pollution, restoring strong clean car and fuel efficiency standards, and expanding investments in electric vehicles.
- Stop fossil fuel development by preventing oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and off our coasts, protecting National Monuments, issuing a moratorium on fossil fuel development on federal wildlands, and blocking the development of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
- Defend vulnerable communities and our public health by ensuring that everyone has access to lead-free drinking water and by reversing Trump's rollback of the critical National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), which guarantees people have a voice in community development.
- Stand up for nature, wildlife, and ecosystems by reversing Trump's rollbacks of the Endangered Species Act and working to protect at least 30 percent of U.S. land and sea by 2030.
