I think it's more likely they'll fall by the wayside.
In the first place, they're not going to continue unless a democrat gets elected. While that seems more likely at the current moment, it's not guaranteed. So if a Republican gets elected, pretty much everything climate-change related probably goes right out for 8 years (assuming re-election, probably a safe bet).
Besides that, I might have missed it - been watching/hearing less news lately - but there seems to be far less clamor about it now than 8 years ago. Guns have definitely taken a huge step forward, as has racial equality. Immigration was huge for a while, but I guess died down?
It also seems to be less of an issue internationally, so that contributes to the US not caring as much about it. That's my impression, anyway, like I said, I've taken in less news of late.
