It is not every day I receive a letter from the president of the United States. After the demagoguery of the past president’s four years (though his threat still looms over America’s weakened democracy) the November 2020 elections were such a relief. I say this not just for political reasons, but also for the impacts this election will have on public health and climate change, among others.
As I have discussed time and again, social change requires both a public will and a well-thought national policy by our leadership. It will be a heavy lift for Biden/Harris and the Congress. Here’s to a New Society.
