From the “climate change is ubiquitous and omnipotent” department comes this desperate attempt to capitalize on a social crisis. I think the most likely reason this PR exists is that people aren’t paying much attention to climate change, so they are trying to be “relevant” in today’s brick-throwing activist street narrative. See our previous story on the topic.
Climate activists have been trying to link racial inequality, poverty, famines, wars, refugees, and just about anything socially problematic to “climate change” for years in an attempt to make it more “relevant”. Only the low-information types actually swallow that kool-aid.

Contact: Subhan Cheema Climate Power 2020 Statement on Racial Justice Washington, D.C. – Today, Climate Power 2020 issued the following statement:
“We stand in solidarity with those demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and the untold number of Black individuals murdered because of systemic racism and white supremacy in this country.
“From police brutality to discriminatory housing laws, from a corrupt legal system to contaminated drinking water and polluted air, our country has been built upon racist systems that we must all work together to break down.
“Climate justice is racial justice, and all those dedicated to fighting for a just America must stand together in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
“This year is the defining moment for our nation. We must do the work to empower our leaders to intentionally take the actions necessary to dismantle these racist structures and build a just and equitable future. We must also hold individuals, like Donald Trump, who further injustice and incite violence accountable.
“If able, we encourage you to support the organizations on-the-ground fighting racial injustice: Black Visions Collective, The Liberty Fund, The Freedom Fund, the Bail Project, and other organizations dedicated to creating systemic change.”
Climate Power 2020 is putting the Trump administration on defense every single day for ignoring experts, refusing to believe in science, surrendering our government to big oil executives, and gutting public health protections, all at the expense of future generations. The 2020 presidential election is the defining moment for how our nation addresses the climate crisis—our leaders must be emboldened to take immediate action on climate change and to build a just and equitable economy. The time to act is now. Learn more: climatepower2020.org
