Inslee on climate change
Armed with a fresh pair of black horn rims, Inslee drove home the urgency of the climate crisis on Wednesday far more effectively than he was able to in his first debate. His opening and closing statements were devoted strictly to his signature issue, and he showed some impressive gusto while taking Joe Biden to task for saying the U.S. needs to be realistic about how it plans to deal with rising temperatures. ‘Survival is the plan we need,” countered Inslee, adding that the “time is up” to merely think about solutions or to slowly move away from fossil fuels. “The house is on fire,” he said.
