America faced an inflection point in the climate crisis in 2020. Record-setting fires and environmental devastation were inescapable sights on the news, as the tragic consequences of a warming planet were on display at home and abroad. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic showed us the reality of living under multiple ecological disasters and the murder of George Floyd and ongoing police and environmental violence further demonstrated the importance of an intersectional approach to environmental justice. And finally, how would American respond? With a historic presidential election and sharp contrasts between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, it was clear much was at stake with the result.
