In his own words: “Tackling the climate crisis is the most important thing we can do to build a bright tomorrow for our children and a better today for all Americans. Climate change threatens life on earth as we know it, and the steps we take to fight its causes  also protect public health, create good jobs, and grow the economy.

I have a track record to show that I will prioritize climate action and cut emissions. In New York City,  our administration cut carbon emissions by 14 percent while also creating a record number of jobs. I’ve worked with communities around the country to shut down coal plants that poison the air and water. So far we’ve closed more than half of all U.S. coal plants, and as a result, 10,000 fewer Americans are dying each year from coal pollution. When President Trump backed out of the Paris Agreement, I helped form a coalition called America’s Pledge to uphold our commitment to the rest of the world – and the first act I’ll take as president will be to re-enter the agreement.
