Elizabeth Warren adopts Inslee's Climate Plan: 'I’m challenging every other candidate'- to do same

As a former Inslee supporter I was very gratified to see this news.


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Tuesday announced she's backing Washington Gov. Jay Inslee's climate plan as part of her platform in the 2020 presidential race, calling for the U.S. to achieve 100 percent clean energy within the next ten years.

"Today, I’m embracing that goal by committing to adopt and build on Governor Inslee’s ten-year action plan to achieve 100% clean energy for America by decarbonizing our electricity, our vehicles, and our buildings," Warren said in a Medium post Tuesday night. "And I’m challenging every other candidate for President to do the same."

While Jay Inslee dropped out two weeks ago his candidacy changed the substance of the primary  debate profoundly, so that the Democratic Party is focusing on the crisis that is just beginning to unfold around us in alarming ways. Inslee also pushed hard for the Climate Debate, that is taking place tomorrow.

Here’s the plan: 100% Clean Energy for America

I hope more Democratic candidates do embrace Inslee’s climate plan.

I applaud Elizabeth Warren’s vision as we prepare to face our species most challenging epoch.
