Biden administration cites climate change as a ‘racial justice issue’

Gina McCarthy, National Climate Adviser for President Biden, said climate change – a priority for the administration – is also a racial justice issue. In a video addressing the intersectionality of climate change posted over the weekend, McCarthy explained that the issue “exacerbates the challenges in the communities that have been left behind.” “It goes after the very same communities that pollution has held back and racism has held back,” McCarthy said. “Climate justice is about equal rights.”
