Unfortunate State of Mainstream U.S. Presidential Debates

In the three highly-televised U.S. presidential debates, there was not a single question asked to the candidates on stage about climate change, even though it is arguably the greatest threat to national security.

Shhhh…..climate change. This is the threat to national security, economic security, and life on earth as we know it that didn’t merit Even. One. Question. in the past 3 presidential debates. That’s one fewer question than Trump’s tweets or Clinton’s “look.”

We have work to do, but things may not be as bad as they seem: a few years ago, most people didn’t think (or know if) climate change was real. That has turned around.
