At Wednesday evening’s Democratic presidential debate, Washington Governor Jay Inslee promoted his climate justice proposal, which would create a 10-year, $9 trillion investment plan to combat the climate crisis, with $1.2 trillion earmarked to help frontline communities build a green energy economy. The plan would also phase out U.S. fossil fuel production and end coal power by 2030. This is Governor Jay Inslee.
Gov. Jay Inslee: “If we make defeating the climate crisis the top priority of the United States, we will have a fighting chance to save ourselves and our children’s future. It has to be our top priority. My plan is one of national mobilization, quickly bringing 100% clean energy to Americans, creating 8 million good union jobs.”
