Ask about Climate Change at the Presidential Debates

    1. Sponsored by

      League of Conservation Voters

Millions of voters will get their information about the presidential candidates by watching the debates this fall.

After a summer where the effects of climate change have caused hardship for people across the county — from flooding in the Southeast to drought in the Midwest to the wildfires in Colorado, where the debate is being held — it’s critical that American voters learn what the candidates plan to do to address global warming.  With your help, we can convince the moderators to ask the candidates about their plans to address the climate crisis and generate a substantive discussion about global warming on the national stage.

Sign our petition urging the presidential debate moderators to ask President Obama and Mitt Romney about climate change!

      If someone denies the plain scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming, they should be called out and criticized for it.

      As a long time science teacher, my goal is to educate students that their actions make a difference. We need to face the reality of a planet that has limits and what happens when humans exceed those limits.
