In an interview with The 19th, talking about Jane Fonda Climate PAC

I’m disappointed, frankly, that President Biden has opened public lands for oil and gas development. This flies in the face of his earlier proclamations that indicated he understood that the climate crisis is a true existential one for human beings and the planet. What I’d like to see, and what most climate activists would like to see, is President Biden declaring a climate emergency, which would free up all kinds of financial and political resources for him to bring to bear on this crisis. Another extremely important thing that needs to happen is an ending to taxpayers’ subsidies of the fossil fuel industry. Currently we give them $20 billion every year. This is unconscionable and must be stopped. One of the provisions in the Build Back Better bill was an ending to these subsidies, but that was removed from the bill because of pressure from a group of moderate Democrats in Texas led by Rep. Henry Cuellar.

I am sickened and deeply disappointed that President Biden has given the go-ahead to Enbridge Line 3 in Minnesota. This belies his promises on the campaign trail to follow science and stop new fossil fuel development and cut our carbon emissions in half by 2030. All of us need to make our voices heard now and demand the President keep his promises. We want a livable future. #stopline3

In an interview with CNN, talking about Biden's climate change actions

He’s done a lot of very good things. But not enough. Not bold enough. And not fast enough. We’re up against time.

In an interview with Oceana, talking about her book on climate action

Great question. Well, it’s getting harder to not notice the effects of climate change: the catastrophic fires in the West, rising seas, tens of millions of climate refugees, more frequent and severe hurricanes, prolonged drought, flooding, hotter summer weather. There are those who, despite all this, refuse to believe what scientists are saying. I’m not sure we should waste our time with them. It’s like the people who still say COVID is a political hoax. But for the others – get them to listen to or read what climate science is saying. The scientists are unanimous in saying it’s very dire and time is running out. If we miss the nine-year mark (2030), at which time they say we must have cut our carbon emissions in half, it will be pretty much out of our hands, although every half degree of warming we can prevent will save millions of lives and species.

@JoeBiden is making fantastic progress on climate, but simply reversing Trump’s damage isn’t enough. Visit http://whichside.org to learn more and to share this powerful portrait of Biden by my friends @OBEYGIANT and @GreenpeaceUSA

In an interview with The New York Times, on speaking to Trump’s daughter, Ivanka

I told her I wanted to try to have a meeting with her father, and that I was going to bring some very beautiful women who cared a lot about the climate and we were going to get on our knees and plead with him and tell him he would be the world’s biggest hero if he started to act to avert the climate crisis. And she laughed and said she’d look into it, and I never heard from her again. No surprise there.

In an op-ed to the New York Times

In just the past year, the United States has experienced deadly wildfires, devastating flooding and the hottest month ever recorded, all driven, at least in part, by climate change. What is President Trump’s response? He’s pulling the United States out of the Paris agreement and rolling back 85 environmental safeguards, including important and consequential climate initiatives. This should not be surprising; he once called climate change a “hoax.” The Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, is also blocking efforts to deal with the climate crisis. We have reached a time in this fight when the only way forward is to organize, mobilize and vote politicians who won’t act out of office. We must overcome the power of the fossil fuel industry and elect an environmental champion for president and a congressional leadership ready to move forward aggressively with a Green New Deal to save us and the planet, starting the day they take office.
