Inslee to Pence: ‘Wake up and smell the carbon dioxide, Mike.’
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee called for the United States to “break this addiction to fossil fuels” in announcing the fourth iteration of his climate plan at the edge of the Everglades on Monday morning.
“Mike Pence said we now have the cleanest air in the world, that there’s nothing to worry about from pollution in fossil fuels. Wake up and smell the carbon dioxide, Mike,” said Inslee, going on to explain that carbon dioxide levels are higher now than at any other point in human history.
