In his own words: “Simply put, this is about our kids, their future and quality of life. I talk a lot on the campaign trail, and even in my rollout of my climate policy video, about my grandkids.

We cannot shirk from our responsibility to take a leadership role in solving this global crisis. Every day that passes with the Trump Administration increases the urgency of acting to mitigate and adapt and makes our work that much harder to keep the American people healthy and safe and to ensure that all our communities are well-prepared for future climate impacts.
