Tonight, before President Biden addresses a joint session of Congress, we’re reflecting on his first 100 days in office and preparing for what’s next. After pushing, pressuring, watching, and ranking his performance so far, here’s our topline assessment: President Biden has done more to tackle the climate crisis than any president in history. At the same time, he has not yet done enough.
The bar for action is not set by what pundits deem possible or by the accomplishments of past administrations — it’s set by science and justice. Science demands we rapidly phase out fossil fuel extraction and transition to 100 percent renewable energy. Justice demands we invest in the communities who have borne the brunt of pollution and the workers who depend on the fossil fuel economy. There is still time for President Biden to become the climate leader that our country — and the world — desperately needs.

As of Friday morning, we will be 100 days into Joe Biden’s presidency. There are 1,363 days left in his first term. There’s so much work to be done. Thank you for being with us, for demanding science and justice as the guiding principles of this administration, and raising your voice to have a real impact. People and the planet are counting on you.
