Biden Selects Green New Deal Advocates To Run Presidential Climate Change Task Force

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden has selected co-chairs for his climate change task force, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and former Secretary of State John Kerry.

Allowing these progressives to lead direction on climate change policy is an effort to unite the party before the general election in November.

The group will also include the executive director of the Sunrise Movement, Varshini Prakash. Sunrise is the youth-led champion of the Green New Deal. The task force is one of many and are being formed by Senator Sanders (D-VT).

When Sanders endorsed Biden in April, he said that in spite of the differences between Biden and Sanders, “I hope that these task forces will come together utilizing the best minds and people in your campaign and in my campaign to work out real solutions to these very, very important problems.”
