Obama chose health care. Trump went with taxes. Presidential hopeful Jay Inslee is the only candidate with a very different top priority: to stop climate change. With a laser focus on climate and the environment, the Washington state governor is a notable departure from other Democratic candidates who regularly mention but rarely prioritize the issue.
At the same time, a recent poll of 2019 public policy priorities showed Americans rank climate change next to last. What’s included in Inslee’s bold vision for bringing climate into the spotlight of American interest? Will a climate-focused candidate nudge the Democratic platform further toward climate action?
Join us for a discussion with climate-focused candidate Washington Governor Jay Inslee leading up to the 2020 presidential election.
