How Climate Change Is On The Ballot On Election Day


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Antonia Juhasz about climate change on the 2020 ballot.

After years of trying to center the issue of climate change during elections, the 2020 Presidential race is finally the one where global warming went from the margins to center-stage. Climate scientists are warning that the November 3rd race is a make-or-break moment not just for the United States but the whole world.

President Donald Trump has made dismantling climate regulations one of his top priorities and has routinely denigrated renewable energy sources. He has encouraged skepticism on the science, reduced the idea of climate justice to clean air and water, and in the latest instance, installed a Supreme Court justice who thinks climate science is “controversial.”

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman.
