Making Climate Change an Issue in the Primaries
February 9, 2016
After sending out our action alert for the Clean Energy Saves Lives campaign, urging our members to help make climate change an issue in the primaries, we received encouraging news from Jim Newell, one of our members.
Jim informed us of an article in Huffington Post Politics that told the following story: At a recent GOP campaign stop in New Hampshire, someone brought up the question of climate change. He thought he would be booed for his question -- and was surprised to be greeted with applause!
This has been a recurring event in GOP town hall meetings, according to the article, even though the topic has been absent in the debates. More and more people are realizing that climate change is largely manmade, and they want to see how the next leader of the United States is planning on using policy to improve it.
In light of this promising news, join in the campaign and challenge the presidential candidates with climate change questions. Show them that Americans are concerned and looking for a leader who will take powerful action.
