Neither presidential candidate has discussed the issue of climate change so far in their campaigns.

Take Action

Tell debate moderator Jim Lehrer to make climate change part of the upcoming presidential debate on October 3rd.

take action today

It has been a year of extreme weather.

Droughts, floods and wildfires have ravaged the US during the hottest 12-month period in our country's history. Meanwhile, sea ice in the Arctic melted more this summer than ever before, and experts are saying that within a decade we could see ice free summers there for the first time in many thousands of years.

The message is clear: climate change is real and it's happening right now. That's why we need to hear what the two presidential candidates are planning to do about it. And there's no better space than the presidential debates for them to do just that.

Take action today and help make the issue of climate change part of the debate for President.

On Wednesday of next week, President Obama and Mitt Romney will meet in Denver, CO for the first of four Presidential debates. Neither major party candidate has really discussed the issue of climate change much at all so far during the campaign.

Now is our opportunity to change that. But there isn't much time. Jim Lehrer of PBS is hosting the first debate and likely compiling the questions as you read this.

Send a message today to Jim Lehrer and ask them to make sure that climate change is part of the presidential debates.

After all, a planet that can continue to sustain human life is an important part of any solution to any of the other problems we're currently facing.

All we're asking for is one question. Considering what's at stake, it's not too much to ask.
