Lind Initiative Series Description: The world is nearing the point-of-no-return for catastrophic and irreversible climate change. Without action, the future will be one of mass forced migration, famine, and economic costs in the trillions of dollars. Many of these effects will be felt within the United States, and yet no other country is as deeply divided on climate change. For America, the climate crisis is as much a domestic political crisis as it is a crisis of planetary sustainability. But voices for climate action in America remain strong and there are signs of progress. American activists and philanthropists are increasingly steering the global conservation about how to solve the crisis. Innovation in renewable energy, geoengineering, and artificial intelligence are thriving and may hold the key. American cities have stepped up to assume the mantle of leadership in reducing greenhouse gases when the federal government has failed. There are signs of both promise and peril for America’s climate future. Can the United States overcome its domestic climate crisis to become a global leader for climate action? Or are the forces of extreme partisanship, climate denialism, and dirty industry too deeply entrenched?
