Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Lauran French about climate change.
As unprecedented wildfires continue to rage across the West Coast of the U.S. and fierce record-breaking hurricanes pummel the Gulf and parts of the East Coast, next week’s Presidential debate will play out as though the problem of climate change simply does not exist. Fox News host Chris Wallace who is the moderator of the first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic Nominee Joe Biden, has released his list of debate topics. Nowhere on it is the issue of the changing climate and its impact on people and the environment. Yet polls show Americans increasingly see climate change as a defining issue of our time, even across party lines.
Lauren French, Senior Communications Director at Climate Power 2020.
