"It is urgent and the time frame is critical and it has to be right now," said Vicki Arroyo, executive director of the Georgetown Climate Center at Georgetown Law. "We can 't lose another four years, much less eight years" (Neuhauser). The next Americans President, experts say, may be the very last who can avert catastrophe from climate change which makes it very important for the next American President to give climate change the top most priority.

In addition to this, it also requires the Republicans and Democrats to come to a consensus so that they can cooperate with the next U.S. President in his efforts to curb climate change. While all Democrats support the efforts being taken to solve the issue of climate change, in a recent poll it was found that 59% of Republicans believe in climate change (Davenport).
