Since the Biden-Harris administration entered office earlier this year, the United States has seen renewed vigor for climate action at the federal level. That federal action has been matched with an urgency to promote bold, increased global efforts for climate as well, which the Biden-Harris administration emphasized while hosting the Leaders Summit on Climate in April. Strong federal leadership on climate that prioritizes clean energy and energy-related economic development policies is encouraging to Fresh Energy, largely because it sets the tone for both local and international climate cooperation.
This December, Fresh Energy’s science policy director, J. Drake Hamilton, will travel to Madrid, Spain, to participate in the United Nations 25th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25).
