On September 22, the Republican candidates will meet in Orlando, Florida for the Fox News/Google Debate, and they’ll be answering questions that you ask.
This is a perfect moment to ask your politicians why they deny the science of climate change or why they are so opposed to protecting the environment in general. Submit your question now in video or text and vote on other questions you’d like to hear asked.
I asked the following question (currently pending):
In the past few decades we have amassed a vast amount of evidence that man made global warming is really happening. 98 out of 100 climate scientists agree on this.
What is your stance on this subject and what are you planning on doing about it?
Will you join me in letting our voice being heard? As for a long time we have been in the majority, telling our politicians to listen to us and take the actions that are needed. In the United States alone poll after poll has shown this:
- 71 percent of Americans say global warming should be a very high (13%), high (27%), or medium (31%) priority for the president and Congress, including 88 percent of Democrats, 66 percent of Independents, and 50 percent of Republicans
- 91 percent of Americans say developing sources of clean energy should be a very high (32%), high (35%), or medium (24%) priority for the president and Congress, including 97 percent of Democrats, 89 percent of Independents, and 85 percent of Republicans.
But we are constantly being thwarted by a very vocal and well organized minority. Which has made it possible for science denialism to prevail in U.S. politics. This has only been possible due to the majority being silent, please don’t be silent this time.
