Kamala Harris prioritizes climate change over real policy solutions as California burns

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who joined Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s campaign a month ago, was just called out for “dereliction of duty” when it comes to the wildfires devastating her home state of California.

Harris traveled to California last week for a photo op with Governor Gavin Newsom at one of the large fires in the Sierra Nevada foothills, but Breitbart pointed out that Harris has declined to effect meaningful legislative change in the state.

Instead, Harris has used California’s tragic and devastating fires as an excuse to push the leftist climate change agenda, leaving her actual constituents in the dust.

Harris stated after her visit: “Sadly, these wildfires and the devastation they cause are utterly predictable,” Harris said. “This is not a partisan issue. This is just a fact. We have to do better as a country.”

Breitbart’s Hannah Bleau observed that Harris’s idea of “doing better” doesn’t do anything to address the real problem her constituents face:

However, a brief look at Harris’s recent history as a lawmaker shows that she has done very little to address wildfire season in her state in an impactful way.

Most recently, Harris sponsored the Climate Equity Act alongside radical Green New Deal champion Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). According to a press release, the legislation is meant to “ensure that the United States government centers communities on the frontlines of the climate crisis in policy related to climate and the environment” … It specifically requires future legislation to “receive an equity score that is both quantitative and qualitative to estimate the impact on frontline communities” and would also:

  • Establish an independent Office of Climate and Environmental Justice Accountability with a Board of Advisors made up of members and allies of frontline communities to represent the views of frontline communities in rulemaking at the beginning of the rulemaking process.
  • Establish a new position of Director for Climate and Environmental Justice at all relevant agencies to ensure compliance and coordination.
  • Require that representatives of frontline communities are at the table during the drafting and review of relevant rules and regulations, providing insights and comments on how to minimize negative impacts and maximize benefits to frontline communities and ensure those insights and comments are addressed.

Nothing in the legislation addresses issues directly related to forest management — a key factor in addressing wildfires in the modern era, some experts say.

Kamala Harris’s record of prioritizing leftist wish lists instead of voters’ needs is well established — and she wants Americans to vote for the Biden/Harris ticket so she can continue this pattern.
