We are at an inflection point. On Thursday, May 20th 12pm-1:00pm PT, we had an event with these incredible thought leaders for a special conversation about this unique moment in time and how we can make unprecedented progress on equitable climate solutions at scale. To achieve climate stability and resilience, we must address injustice and inequity in the communities most impacted and beyond. Climate impacts connect to so many aspects of our lives. President Biden’s push at the national level is a bold and strong foundation for accelerating solutions at scale in an equitable way. However, none of this potential progress is a done deal. This next year, we need to lean in to support solutions like 100% clean electricity for our grid, cleaner fuels and electrification to power our transportation, and clean and energy smart buildings where we work and live.
