I think these important precautions and huge policy measures we're pursuing to combat coronavirus for the greater collective good is preparing the country, and world, for the big thinking and resilience amid massive changes that we'll need when we move to combat climate change.
We’re proving we can move fast and big against a commonly agreed upon existential threat

But notice how coronavirus didn't get it's due in the US until the markets started dropping?

Hopefully, this changes perspectives around climate - that proactivity is better than reactivity
Dem nominee will need to say this:

"Trump calls climate change a hoax, just like he called COVID-19 fears. The changes we endured combating COVID-19 is just a fraction of what we'll have to do later if we don’t get proactive now. We’ll suffer the consequences of our inaction."
My point is, people will now be able to wrap their heads around the idea of uniting all of humanity against a common existential threat and making massive changes to do so - and that there will be consequences for our climate change inaction, just like there was for COVID-19.
