Inslee in Nevada
The 68-year-old governor has made climate change the primary focus of his presidential bid. On Friday, he spoke to climate activists from organizations such as the Sierra Club, Sunrise Movement and the Nevada Conservation League about the importance of addressing the issue within the next few years.
“I am the candidate saying that we have to make the planet crisis the number one job in the United States,” Inslee said. “We are better people than letting Paradise, California, burn down. It is now our destiny, I believe, to build a clean energy economy to defeat the climate crisis.”
