The Presidential Debate on October 3rd should address climate change & a renewable energy plan of descent away from our dependence on depleting fossil fuels.
You and I know that climate change is one of the most important problems in the world today. Unfortunately, the media doesn’t seem to care. Green Energy Times does!
The first debate of the presidential election is coming up this Wednesday, October 3rd. It’s being hosted by Jim Lehrer of PBS’s NewsHour. We’ve reached out to the NewsHour staff, and they’ve made it clear that they want to know what questions the American people want asked.
Regardless of who you’re supporting in this election, I think we can agree that an issue as important as climate change deserves to be part of the debate. We can start by convincing Mr. Lehrer to do what any responsible journalist would do this Wednesday: ask the question and demand specific answers on what the candidates are planning to do about climate change in the next four years.
The race for the presidency is obviously a national campaign, but the staff at the NewsHour reviewing the questions that are submitted don’t care if you’re from Vermont or Ohio or California – if you take the time to email them, they’ll take your input seriously.
We’ve got a lot of work left to do on climate change – locally as well as globally – but getting the presidential candidates to address the issue seriously in the debate is a good step in the right direction.
Thanks for all of your help with this – it is probably the most important issue they should be discussing and finding solutions for — working on implementing a clean renewable energy infrastructure right away!
