Even the DNC knows that a debate exclusively on climate change is going to be a clown fest 😂🍿🍺

    Politicians like Inslee who have looked deep into the science around climate change seem to have an appreciation for how big of a threat it is that the general public doesn’t have yet

      If Al Gore indeed does more about clumate change than you do, and none of his fear mongering came to fruition, you really think it's time to double down on his end-of-the-world alarms? Don't forget, that's the same fear mongering that made him rich.

      Unless you have a PhD in climate science (which you clearly don’t) then yes more than you too

      The definition of a cult, sista.

      When the other side dismisses science as a cult, that’s how you know you’re on the right side

      Climate change isn't a big issue for the wealthy countries. Heck parts of North America stand to benefit.

      Canada has crap tons of unused land that we can move to if needed.

      The human race will survive. Issue is more that the poor countries will be hit hard leading to more opportunist migrants. Which the Dems would be happy about given that's their next voting block.

      Real issue should be how most municipalities are bankrupt due to pension obligations. And the lack of infrastructure spend

    These debates aren’t useful. It’s like when Bill Nye tried to debate the creationist dude. If the other side doesn’t ground their belief in evidence to begin with, no amount of reasoning can actually help you improve your position. Their axioms aren’t reason based to begin with.

      What is the “other side” in the context of a dnc primary debate?

      Al Gore was all about evidence too. Yet we are still around ... The evidence proclaiming anyone disagreeing a heretic? The evidence that requires books to be re-written or burned out of existence? Nah thanks. Call me stereotypical, but it sounds more like a cult.

      Yeah I think the evidence is clear that there’s increasing carbon in the atmosphere due to human activity. What I don’t think anyone really has a solid grasp on our what the consequences of this are. Planetary climate is too complex for us to understand the causal impact of our actions. I mean we should proceed with caution but is entirely possible to shoot ourselves in the foot trying to solve a problem that it’s not as serious as we thought

      listen to michael savage, increasing carbon means warmer climate which is better for life on Earth

      So you really don’t understand how naïve you sound when you say “ believe in climate science “ Like an entire field of study is reduced down to some Boolean. Some self reflection it is in order

    Honestly and entire hour long debate just on climate change is overkill. Everyone but extreme idiots in the GOP (I’m sure many republicans aren’t scientifically illiterate) knows climate change is a real deal. How about 5 minutes each candidate, and make it entirely about how to use new energy production to help not just with climate change but frame it as a new job creator. Then another 5 minute follow up about how climate change will be the biggest risk to national security if we don’t get in front of it. Think of Syrian level mass refugee migration into our precious southern border and every other developed first world country.

    Hmmm...actually maybe we do need a full hour on it. It’s pretty important.

      Totally agree, how we respond to it is something we have a little consensus on today and is very important. So why do you think it is the party leaders in the DNC or censoring this topic?

      My guess is the DNC will keep climate change as a constant topic in all debate topics (economy, foreign policy, trade, national security) rather than an entire debate on it exclusively.

      That ways it’s a tier 1 issue in all forums, and we don’t risk bombarding the public on one issue.

      Might be a good strategy if they stick with it. But who knows.

      I mean sure to come up, the fact is there’s not going to be a dedicated debate to it. So all else being equal what we learned today is that we less focus on it not more. That’s why I think your interpretation is somewhat wishful thinking

      It’s possible that they’re perceiving that Americans feel that it’s less important than other issues. Americans in generally have always held it at a lesser priority than the rest of the world I think.

      My hope is that they keep the theme constant across all debates. Because it is perhaps the core issue that’s most pressings for our generation. And maybe smaller, but regular, doses is the best way to make the issue more important to public.

      But hell...ever since Trump, I’m out of the prediction business.
