Encouragement and Concern from Gov. Inslee's Climate Plan

Statement of Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Action

WASHINGTON - Today, Washington governor and presidential candidate Jay Inslee released a policy plan to address climate change. In response, Food & Water Action Executive Director Wenonah Hauter issued the following statement:

“We are pleased and encouraged to see the aggressive timeline for a transition to clean energy that Governor Inslee is proposing. However, we are disappointed and concerned by all that’s missing from his climate plan. Most notably, he has failed to address the critical need to cut new fossil fuel development at the source, by banning drilling and fracking on federal lands, and ending the dangerous buildout of pipelines and other harmful infrastructure. Any complete transition to a clean, renewable energy future must inevitably include a halt on new oil and gas investment, beginning now.”
