On October 3rd, PBS's Jim Lehrer will moderate a presidential debate between President Obama and Governor Romney. The topic? Domestic policy.This is a perfect opportunity to ask the candidates about global warming. So far, neither candidate has offered a comprehensive plan to combat climate change. And yet, it is one of the most important crises facing our nation, and indeed, our world.Will you take a moment to send a message to Jim Lehrer encouraging him to ask the candidates about their plans to combat climate change?We don't need to hear another cartoonish conversation about whether climate change is real or whether the science is believable. We need to cut to the chase. The way we deal with climate pollution has a huge impact on our economy, on jobs, on innovation, on future growth.It's time to ask the candidates: What is our energy future? What's the best way to get there? How can we be more efficient with precious energy resources? How do we clean up pollution that is damaging the health of our families?Tell debate moderator Jim Lehrer that it's time to get straight answers from the candidates on climate change once and for all.Sincerely,
