9/28/20: Climate change for president: An environmental lens on the presidential candidates – The Daily UW


The following is an excerpt:

Biden also doesn’t support other important progressive environmental policies such as a ban on all fracking, one of the most environmentally destructive practices in the fossil fuel industry. In the eyes of more progressive voters, such as myself, Biden may get the United States back on track. However, his campaign’s take on climate change still feels underbaked in terms of enacting real, necessary forward motion beyond undoing Trump’s climate-detrimental actions.

Green party candidate Howie Hawkins advocates for much more progressive ecosocialist environmental policies, including an intersectional green economy reconstruction program and progressive ecological taxes. He explicitly ties environmental justice to his economic bill of rights, which focuses on providing basic human rights such as free education and universal health care.
