“Democrats believe that climate change poses a real and urgent threat to our economy, our national security, and our children’s health and futures, and that Americans deserve the jobs and security that come from becoming the clean energy superpower of the 21st century.”
-Democratic Party Platform
Democrats are committed to curbing the effects of climate change, protecting America’s natural resources, and ensuring the quality of our air, water, and land for future generations. From investing in clean energy to protecting our ecosystems, Democrats are working to address our biggest environmental challenges, paving the way to a more sustainable America.
Here’s what Democrats and President Obama have done:
As president, Hillary Clinton wants to build on President Obama’s progress. She knows that climate change is one of our nation’s greatest challenges, and that addressing this urgent threat could make America the world’s clean energy superpower and create millions of good-paying jobs.
For decades it has been clear that the way Americans produce and consume energy is not sustainable. Democrats like President Obama and Hillary Clinton are committed to sustainable solutions to protect our environment and grow our economy.
It will take all of us acting together — workers and entrepreneurs, scientists and citizens, the public and the private sector — to address the challenge of climate change and seize our clean-energy future.
