Inslee’s ‘Freedom From Fossil Fuels’ plan, announced during the Democratic primary, is a laudable blueprint for holding fossil fuel executives accountable while supporting workers and communities in the transition off oil and gas.

In response to Joe Biden’s plan to appoint a high-level White House Climate Policy Coordinator next month, Greenpeace Climate Campaign Director Janet Redman says:

“With this morning’s announcement of John Kerry as the Special Presidential Envoy on Climate, the next step for Biden is to get a climate champion like Jay Insee in as climate policy coordinator. Together, America would have two Cabinet-level climate champions with the experience and foresight to combat climate change.

“Inslee’s ‘Freedom From Fossil Fuels’ plan, announced during the Democratic primary, is a laudable blueprint for holding fossil fuel executives accountable while supporting workers and communities in the transition off oil and gas. Inslee brings both the ambition and record on climate we need, plus the political experience to ensure that our government will work as best as it can in service to all people.”
