Inslee on climate change


Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee plunged into the 2020 Democratic presidential primary race Friday, mixing one part dire warning and three parts sunny optimism about a national campaign centered on halting catastrophic global climate change.

During his announcement before a crowd of perhaps 200 supporters at A&R Solar, a solar-panel-installation company based in South Seattle, Inslee pointed to increasingly intense forest fires and other potential effects of rising global temperatures.
