This 29 August 2019 video from the USA says about itself:
Sunrise leader has a message for [chairman of the Democratic party National Committee] Tom Perez
Sunrise Movement‘s Lauren Maunus shares her disappointment at the lack of DNC [Democratic National Committee] sponsored climate debate.
From Senator Bernie Sanders‘ group Our Revolution in the USA, 29 August 2019:
Despite overwhelming support from Democratic voters and activists, and many presidential candidates, last weekend the DNC voted against hosting a debate dedicated to the climate crisis — a crisis that threatens the survival of every living being on earth.
While it’s understandable why the Biden campaign wanted to kill it (after all, he’s publicly supported fracking in the past), our democracy is weaker thanks to the Biden campaign’s efforts to oppose a dedicated climate debate.
We can’t allow the so-called “centrists” (an odd name for a group of people most known for holding unpopular, corporate-friendly opinions) and their allies in the media to distort the science of the climate crisis. That’s why we need your help to continue organizing inside the Democratic Party and outside for real change as we fight the climate crisis.

BIDEN’S APPEAL WANES Former Vice President Joe Biden, 76, has maintained a comfortable lead over his fellow Democratic presidential candidates. But his campaign has become plagued by doubts over his age, fitness for office and whether, as a moderate, he can be a standard-bearer for a party that has grown increasingly liberal. [Reuters]
BIDEN ‘DIDN’T REALIZE’ FUNDRAISER’S FOSSIL FUEL TIES Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said at CNN’s forum on climate change that he was unaware that a fundraiser he’s slated to attend on Thursday is being co-hosted by a founder of a fossil fuel company. [HuffPost]
DEM CLIMATE FORUM EXPOSES FAULT LINES At CNN’s marathon climate crisis town hall, the top 10 candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination united on some key issues. But fault lines opened on fossil fuels, fracking, nuclear energy and the Senate filibuster, suggesting a debate on these differences should be at the forefront of the nomination process, not relegated to a sidebar.

Shame on CNN and the New York Times moderators for ignoring the climate crisis. By Kate Aronoff, 16 October 2019. Virtually every area of politics will be affected by global heating. So why couldn’t moderators be bothered to ask Democratic candidates about it?
