Governor Hickenlooper’s Bold, Global Plan to Combat Climate Change
John Hickenlooper believes climate change is the defining challenge of our time. The planet’s health, our economic well-being, our communities, and our national security are all at risk. It is imperative that we urgently address the climate challenges we face — human lives and livelihoods are at stake. Climate change also presents opportunities. We can re-establish strong and dedicated global leadership on climate change by re-engaging with global partners on the Paris Agreement and lead on agreements that go beyond Paris. We can address the market failures that contribute to the crisis. We can create new jobs in emerging climate-related industries by collaborating with and incentivizing the private sector. And we can become a world leader in the development of climate change technologies. As President, Hickenlooper will lead a scientifically-grounded, focused, inclusive and affordable strategy to address climate change.
