This weekend marks 100 days until the Iowa caucus and climate change continues to be a central issue in the race for the White House.

Elsewhere, Kamala Harris released a plan focused on investing in Native American communities in which she committed to working with Indigenous communities to fight the climate crisis:
“Kamala will ensure that Native Americans have a voice in the fight to rectify systemic environmental injustices forced upon their communities.
