Statement of Tom Steyer on Death of Jane Warner, California Health & Climate Champion
San Francisco, CA – Tom Steyer, co-founder and board member of Next Generation, issued the following statement today to commemorate the life of Jane Warner, President of the American Lung Association of California, who passed away last week:
"With the passing of Jane Warner, California has lost a great champion for health, climate, and the environment. I worked closely with Jane back in 2010 on the ‘No on Proposition 23’ campaign. One of the pivotal moments in our successful campaign to save California's groundbreaking climate law was the ad where Jane spoke out about the importance of voting no on 23 to ‘protect public health and the air we breathe.’ Hearing those words - from a woman who looks like your mom – packed a huge wallop. All of us in the climate movement will miss Jane's warmth, humor, and passion for making the earth a more livable place."
