Governor Jay Inslee on Climate Change

Inslee’s campaign is releasing a climate change plan in pieces, with the most recent piece being released on June 24, 2019. The plan explains the importance of addressing climate change:

“Cutting climate pollution in half by 2030 and achieving net-zero pollution by mid-century is a crucial necessity to avoid crippling the U.S. economy and the planet with vast and irreparable harm. These goals are ambitious, but they are achievable — and based on successes in Washington state and other communities all across America.

However, these climate pollution-reduction goals simply cannot be achieved unless America as a nation is prepared to take on the greatest and most powerful special interests that are holding back our clean energy future: fossil fuel corporations. In order to build a more prosperous, just and inclusive clean energy future, our nation must confront the economic and environmental harm caused by corporate polluters.”

In addition, on June 25, 2019 he tweeted:

“When we act on climate change, we’re protecting our families, our healthcare, our economy — everything. This is not one issue. It’s every issue.”
