It’s day four of 5 Days, 5 Ways Joe Lombardo is Out of Touch with Nevadans and today we’re highlighting Joe Lombardo’s decision to end the state’s climate plan and remove it from the state’s website, while refusing to put forth a plan of his own. 

Despite Nevada being home to two of the fastest-warming cities in the country and Nevadans experiencing some of the worst effects of rampant wildfires, Lombardo continues to be unserious about the issue of climate change. When asked about the status of the state climate plan his administration ended, Lombardo replied, “that’s a great question.” When pressed for a timeline on a new state climate plan, Lombardo admitted, “I don’t know what the answer is. I can’t put it on the website if it isn’t written.” After being the only governor elected or re-elected in 2022 to withdraw their state from the bipartisan U.S. Climate Alliance and ultimately selling out to Big Oil companies, Lombardo doubled down and deleted the state’s climate action plan without offering a replacement plan of his own. 

“In 2021, Democrats put forth a strategic climate plan that focused on investing in clean energy development, heat mitigation, and building an all-around clean energy economy,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Spokesperson, Tai Sims. “After more than a year in office, Joe Lombardo has said and done next to nothing about the pending climate crisis and he can’t even offer a single reason why he’s failed to come up with a plan to mitigate the impacts of climate change.”
