Steyer in Nevada

I put out a climate plan last week, and the three things that distinguish it from all the other climate plans are these. One, I would declare a state of emergency on Day One of my presidency. I would give Congress 100 days to pass some form of the Green New Deal and if they … Continue reading "https://lasvegassun.com/news/2019/aug/10/2020-steyer-touts-benefits-political-outsider/"

Inslee: Transition to a Green Economy Will Create Union Jobs

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said today at the AFSCME Public Service Forum that his plan to combat climate change will create well-paid, union jobs. It is part of a strategy for environmental justice in which “everyone profits in this transition to clean energy,” he added. “One of the greatest opportunities for good, clean-energy union jobs … Continue reading "https://www.afscme.org/now/psf-live?utm_content=buffer#jay-inslee"
