After a summer of national and global climate devastation, Vice President Kamala Harris made a stop at the Cowell Theater on Tuesday to tout Democrats' progress on climate policy just weeks before the midterm elections
During a wide-ranging conversation with podcasters, Harris spoke about her Bay Area roots, the Inflation Reduction Act and environmental justice — including how women, low-income communities and communities of color often bear the brunt of harmful policies.
In one pointed moment, Harris noted a "Venn diagram" connection between states that have poor climate track records and those that are seeking to limit voting rights, reproductive healthcare and LGBTQ rights.
"You would not be surprised to know that there was a significant overlap" between those states, Harris said. "When you then lay on which states are also attacking or obstructing smart climate policy, you will see a really interesting picture."
“We must understand that we are in a very specific moment in time, and this window is going to shut on us if we don't act with a sense of urgency," Harris said. She also said she has "a great sense of optimism that we do feel the urgency, and fortunately we have, as an administration, been able to do things like the Inflation Reduction Act."
For her part, Harris said she was particularly excited about electric vehicles, including electric school buses.

Gee, might your “logic” Skammala apply to countries as well?

It rarely snows where I live but I can travel to another state for my climate right to snow if I need to ...
Overlapping limits will limit overlaps. Or something like that.
What a complete buffoon she is.
“She’s a genius”.
Ain’t that the truth.
Pretty soon many people are going to have a tough time affording to heat their homes and “climate change” is going to be at the bottom or their priority list.

“including how women, low-income communities and communities of color often bear the brunt of harmful policies”
Boy is she dumb. We all know that pregnant and nursing men are most impacted by harmful climate change policies. /sarc
Sorry, but I had to stop reading there. When there is a lie in the first sentence fragment, the remainder of the article can only be worse. By the way, KamelToe is dumb as a bag of rocks.
I too think of having someone scoop out a brain and crap a rancid green poop storm back into the skull is the root of true genius. That’s why I support public education and Woke universities.
She digs venns.
I bet she giggled about it before she was through.
Well, the confluence she is talking about is a series of decisions against stupidity.
Not that she, as a leading Democrat, is capable of such insight. C’mon. Having insight is a disqualifier to vote Demo.
She can’t prove that, everything she says is made up, or a bumper sticker quote.
