Post-Trump Climate Action
U.S. President-Elect Joe Biden is likely to face a Republican Senate and a weakened Democratic majority in the House. In addition, Republicans have strengthened their hold on key state legislatures, with potentially important implications for how the 2020 Census translates into future political power.
The results of the 2020 elections may put national climate legislation like the Green New Deal out of reach for at least the next couple of years. While the Biden Administration will act quickly where it can, including rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, material efforts to tackle climate change may need to be a lot more strategic and/or bipartisan than many observers had envisioned based on the polls leading up to the 2020 election. This micro-website organizes information and resources you can use to think about U.S. climate action in the near- to medium-term.
This climate change micro-site is extracted from the Climate Web, an open-access climate knowledge solution, and the closest thing today to a collective climate intelligence. Based on the work of thousands of experts, the Climate Web facilitates access to the actionable knowledge individuals, companies, and policy-makers need for their climate change decision-making.
