For 2021 Earth Day let’s be grateful that we at long last have an Administration that catapults the importance  of climate change policies, that hails science, that inspires us to have hope and act.

It really is up to Democrats to lead the way. Let’s invite Independents and Republicans to join us.
 
For now, let’s appreciate the primacy of the issue among our party and this Administration.
 
In their words:

“We can’t wait any longer. We see with our own eyes. We know it in our bones. It is time to act.”     — President Joe Biden
 
“For me this issue of the climate crisis relates to every aspect of what we do.”      — Vice-President Kamala Harris
 
“Everything depends on our ability to sustainably inhabit this earth, and true sustainability will require us all to change our way of thinking on how we take from the earth and how we give back.”     — Deb Haaland, Cabinet Secretary, Department of Interior
 
"We need to be the leader, rather than passive bystanders, or otherwise we're going to allow other countries like China and others we're fighting to be able to corner this market. So, Joe Biden's focus has been obviously on climate change, and taking advantage of the economic opportunity for our people to be able to build the products that help America to lead."  —Janet Granholm, Cabinet Secretary, Department of Energy
 
Democrats believe that climate change poses a real and urgent threat to our economy, our national security, and our children’s health and futures, and that Americans deserve the jobs and security that come from becoming the clean energy superpower of the 21st century.
— Democratic Party Platform
