Jake Tapper dedicated all of three minutes to the greatest challenge facing our existence, and abruptly moved on after letting only three of the 11 candidates offer perfunctory and vacuous responses. You could even hear Sen. Ted Cruz begging Tapper to let him explain why climate change is a hoax, but Tapper declined.

This is an abject failure on so many fronts. First and foremost, Mr. Tapper actually contacted us directly, assuring us that not only does he discuss the climate, but also that he heard the requests of our members and to, “please stop flooding his twitter account.”
In three hours we heard more about marijuana policy than about climate change policy. But Operation Climate Conversation is not over… it’s just beginning. We will make a point of “flooding” the social media outlets of every network and their moderators for future debates. And it’s looking like we’re going to have to make our voices heard in person at future debates as well. Stay tuned for more information on how you can take action. But in the meantime, we need to let Tapper know that he not only let us down, he let the voters down and definitely let the planet down.
