It is depressing to see the websites of statewide candidates make no mention of climate change. It is the most pressing existential threat to humanity and our children.
If you are running for public office please do everyone a favor and tell us what you are going to do about climate change. Stop worrying about how it is going to poll with voters, grow a backbone, and lead us. Please!

While mitigation and adaptation efforts have expanded substantially in the last four years, they do not yet approach the scale considered necessary to avoid substantial damages to the economy, environment, and human health over the coming decades.”
