In an op-ed in The Guardian, Julian Brave NoiseCat argues that “Elites who divorce climate policy from social justice are almost as out of touch as those who deny climate science altogether.”

He goes on to say, “Experts agree that we must quickly deploy vast resources to mitigate and adapt to global warming. If the United States aims to shift to 100% clean and renewable energy, we will need to build solar and wind farms across the country along with a national grid to connect them. Such a transformative investment could create a boom in jobs. But who would those jobs go to? Where would we build all of this new, green infrastructure, and who should own it? Which communities get energy first? How do we keep it affordable?”
