"Ignored No Longer, People Of Color Shape Climate Action"

"Communities of color that have long suffered from fossil fuel pollution are harnessing growing influence on the national stage as President Biden races to address climate change.

Biden unveiled a White House Environmental Justice Interagency Council this week to "ensure a whole-of-government approach to addressing current and historical environmental injustices," according to a sweeping executive order on global warming.

The Biden directive set a goal of delivering 40% of federal climate investments to disadvantaged communities."
