WA Governor Inslee Appointed to Climate Change Task Force

Washington Governor Jay Inslee will soon help advise the White House on how to respond to the effects of climate change. President Barack Obama Friday appointed Inslee to a task force that includes governors, mayors and tribal officials.

The group will advise the federal government on climate issues like increasing wildfires and ocean acidification, and extreme heat waves. Obama first mentioned establishing the task force in a speech on climate change this June.
