Climate Change and Environmental Justice

Our planet is in crisis. Climate change is not some distant threat — we’re witnessing many of its effects today. And the immediate burden of much of the pollution causing climate change is disproportionately borne by low-income communities and communities of color.

As president, Cory will take immediate steps to combat climate change, and protect and defend all communities affected by pollution and environmental injustice:

  • Rejoin the Paris Climate Accord.
  • Undo the damage the Trump Administration has done at the Environmental Protection Agency and hold polluters accountable.
  • Work to implement a Green New Deal.
  • Put a moratorium on drilling on our public lands.
  • Reauthorize and triple the Superfund tax on chemical and oil companies.
  • Increase fees on coal mine operators to pay for the cleanup of abandoned mines.
  • Protect marginalized communities suffering from environmental injustices by increasing staffing at the EPA’s
  • Environmental Justice Office and the External Civil Rights Enforcement Office.
  • Step up efforts to defend communities of color, low-income communities, and indigenous communities by doubling staffing in all EPA enforcement offices.
  • Safeguard the basic human right to safe drinking water.
  • End the plague on communities caused by lead paint.
  • Stop polluting companies from evading responsibility for environmental cleanups.
  • Raise the standards for granting or renewing Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act Permits.
