Our planet is in serious, irrevocable trouble. There’s no bigger issue. Which is why it’s flat-out wrong that Fox News’s Chris Wallace — and those who advised him — didn’t see fit to put climate change on his topic list for Tuesday’s first presidential debate. “The fires are burning. The climate should not be some kind of side issue that only comes up in the context of some other subject, if at all,” said Jeff Cohen, a former cable-TV pundit and co-founder of RootsAction Education Fund, which has gathered thousands of signatures on a petition to the moderators of the three presidential and one vice presidential debates.
