How Tom Steyer would fight climate change, gun violence and corporate corruption


On climate change: Steyer has also put hundreds of millions of dollars toward environmental advocacy through his organization, NextGen America. He said on his first day as president, he would declare a national emergency to address climate change. “It is an emergency,” Steyer said. “The president should deal with it that way because we’re talking about the health and safety of every American.” Steyer has released a proposal on climate justice and says an important part is reaching out to the “most affected communities and getting their ideas of leadership to make sure the program works for them.”
