In August, the U.S. Senate passed climate provisions that were immediately hailed as historic, marking President Biden’s most significant legislative achievement to date. Coming after a summer of record heat waves, floods, fires, and other catastrophes around the world, the bill sparked debate over whether its contents will meet the moment with sufficient urgency, and how much we should celebrate it as a significant, if limited, victory. Meanwhile, the viability of other avenues for climate action — from community-led protests to protests staged at museums — remains contentious, too. At this critical moment in an endless series of critical moments, we asked journalists, activists, organizers, commentators, scholars, and others to share responses to the American climate bill and weigh in on the state of global climate action (and inaction) more broadly. Taking us from the halls of Washington, D.C. to Pakistan, New Zealand, and the Arctic Circle, this collection represents a partial snapshot of what’s being attempted, what’s working, what isn’t, and where we go from here.
