President-elect Joe Biden can position the U.S. as a global leader in stabilizing runaway climate change by expanding on two key campaign pledges. First, he needs to ban new oil and gas permitting on federal lands and waters while ushering in 10 million clean-energy jobs. Then, he needs to back his pledge of $20 billion for the Amazon and lead by example in creating the nation’s strategic natural-carbon reserve. Getting this right has never been more urgent. We have a mere decade or so before the climate becomes even more disrupted with devastating consequences to people and 1 million species facing extinction.
