Nobodyisflyingtheplane when a whole Presidential campaign goes by and there is no meaningful discussion of one of the most pressing issues we face.
Why has this major issue been forgotten while we allow our candidates to dicker over
inconsequential minutia bullshit.
Climate change has been a subject at the Presidential or Vice-Presidential debates since 1988, as Brad Johnson, who surveys environmental coverage for ThinkProgress, pointed out this week. Yet through all of the 2012 debates, not a single question was asked about climate change, and on the stump, neither candidate has had much to say about the issue — with Mitt Romney more often using global warming as a punchline, and President Obama mentioning it in passing, at most.
