The Climate Crisis Can’t Take 4 More Years of Trump. We Must Push Biden from the Left

After massive outcry from activists and young voters, debate moderator Chris Wallace questioned President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden about the climate crisis at the first presidential debate.

He did not include it in his initial list of debate topics. Kate Aronoff, author and staff writer at The New Republic, says she didn’t expect climate change to come up, but was unsurprised by the responses.

“We’ve known for years that Donald Trump denies the science of climate change,” she says. “And we know that Joe Biden doesn’t support a Green New Deal.”
