Today marks the 50th Anniversary of #EarthDay, and this year's theme is climate action. Climate action might not initially appear relevant in the context of our current daily reality of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, a closer look reveals the clear link between those most severely affected by COVID-19 and our friends and neighbors most vulnerable to the health impacts of climate change: people of color, older people, and disadvantaged communities. This is an unfortunate reality both in the U.S. and around the world. In Nevada, strong climate action at the state and local level will benefit the health of our most vulnerable populations while establishing a stronger, more resilient economy for all Nevadans.
