"If we want to build a democratic majoritarian climate coalition, we need a politics that appeals beyond the credentialed classes," writes Huber. "In other words, we need a working-class climate politics centered not on knowledge and smart policy, but rather more everyday materials struggle over access to energy, food, housing, and transportation—the very sectors we need to decarbonize."
