“It is exciting to see so many presidential candidates make climate change a top issue in their campaigns. It reflects the urgency so many American feel about this great challenge, which is translating into real political power for climate solutions.

“Governor Jay Inslee’s announcement is remarkable evidence of this shift – a presidential candidate putting the climate issue at the center of his campaign launch.

“We look forward to all the candidates offering bold solutions that move us to 100% clean energy. It’s long past time that we got serious about cutting climate pollution and leaving a healthier world for our kids.”
