Bloomberg discusses why Biden Ties Climate Change to the Struggle for Racial Equality.
- Climate, pollution ‘not just an environmental issue,’ he says
- Biden seeks to elevate the issue of environmental justice
Democratic nominee Joe Biden linked climate change and pollution to the struggle against racial inequality, vowing to fight as president for environmental justice.
In remarks Tuesday webcast by the League of Conservation Voters, Biden said he would defend communities of color “where people, in fact, tend to be victims of being put in spots where the water is not clean, the air you can’t breath.”
