Inslee on climate change


Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has not been shy about framing his candidacy to become the 2020 Democratic nominee for president around global climate change.

In his policy proposal he says that defeating climate change is the “defining challenge of our time,” and that it is incumbent upon the next president of the United States to make that challenge a priority.

“It does call for a president to make this Job 1, because if it is not Job 1, it won’t get done,” Inslee told NPR. “We have to understand if we don’t solve the climate crisis, it will prevent us from dealing with all of our other hopes and challenges.”
