CLIMATE JUSTICE & OUR GREEN ENERGY FUTURE
Climate Justice isn't just about taking action to mitigate climate change. It also means investing in communities and populations that are already facing adverse effects as a result of climate change and pollution to build resiliency and improve outcomes.
As we transition our economy away from fossil fuels, we must do so with compassion to ensure that workers maintain their pensions and have access to training for new, quality jobs in a green economy that Washington can be proud of.
We've taken great steps with the Clean Energy Transformation Act, but now is not the time to get complacent. There is still work we can do to end our toxic relationship with fossil fuels and design a future for Washington that preserves our beautiful surroundings and creates economic opportunity across the state.
FOREST FIRE MITIGATION
Out of control forest fires have become a regular terror for our state of late. These fires put lives in jeopardy, devastate homes, and create dangerous air pollution for all Washingtonians. We need to invest in making our forests more resilient against fires to prevent these devastating disasters.
CLEAN UP OUR WATERS
Whether it's our beloved native species like Salmon and Orcas, or us humans, our health existence depends on having access to clean water. We must invest in preventing pollution from runoff, clean up our waters, and ensure that the Department of Ecology is meeting its reporting requirements so we can track pollution.
