The Amazon is burning. July was the hottest month in recorded history. And the scientific consensus is that the world has little more than a decade to avert catastrophic global warming. The leaders of the Democratic Party, however, are worried about giving the issue of climate change too much attention.
Perez has stymied the DNC once again. Bennett isn’t the only candidate that has angrily spoken out about this ridiculous decision. Inslee is apparently out of the running, which is unfortunate, because he’s our climate cheerleader. Wassernan, as 2016 DNC chair, sabotaged Bernie Sanders, possibly helping the idiot Trump get to the White House.
The Democrats are desperate to beat Trump but are defeating their chances. It’s disgusting! Why do the candidates need the DNC permission to plead for a debate platform?
The Amazon fires are quickly exacerbating our climate crisis beyond repair. Everyone on this planet needs to be raising hell about this debacle in South America.
The candidates NEED to place climate change debates right at the top of their agenda with health care, gun control, white supremacy, gun violence, the corrupt NRA, big pharmaceutical, big agriculture...my god...too much! And not worry about what Perez thinks best.
Sorry for the tirade, but the Democrats better step it up or we are looking at another Trump victory in November 2020.
Thanks for this! I am contacting Dem candidates to strongly encourage them to challenge the DNC by holding a Climate Debate.
"In the race for the 2008 Democratic nomination, the last contested Democratic primary that resulted in a Democratic president, there were 26 debates, including four in August 2017 and four in September 2017. This year there are no debates in August and just one in September."
That can't be right. Do you mean debates in August 2007 and September 2007?
I was read a column in a mag called The Hill it was full of words like Socialism the entire Republican party would not know a Socialist if He/She jumped up & bit the on the arse
Why on Gods Earth would anybody with half a brain vote for the bunch of un-jailed criminals who control the Republican Party & the crooks who inhabit it
The DNC has weak leadership. No stones. Why I am an independent. However considering the alternative, I will vote blue. Our problem as a country is we do not offer good candidates, lack of campaign finance reform and the influence of special interests ie the 1 Per Cent and their influence on both sides of the aisle.
Ye Gods are the DNC trying to lose,to many on or in the DNC are beholding to crooked Money that does not want to rock the boat,Sanders is the closest to a left winger that you see to have & of course the Squad who I think Hannity must have nightmares about along with his obsession with Clinton
You want to clean up the US elect Sanders with a female VP who between the two of them are smarter than the entire Republican party,Then KICK the Murdoch family OUT of the US shut down FOX non NEWS sell his papers off & jail them for corruption
The 3 Countries having problems with Democracy are the US,Australia,UK all have one common denominator the Murdoch press get rid of Mr Phone hacker & things could settle down do nothing & Murdoch/Trump will wreck you
Jaime Harrison? Is he then not the right person to take down #LeningradLindsey? And how can we pressure the DNC to hold more topic-specific debates? And with REAL questions, like, What are your proposals for restoring our leadership in slowing climate change? @TomPerez
