    I applaud Gov. Jay Inslee and Sen Bernie Sanders getting climate reform measures into their gubernatorial and presidential campaign platforms.  But even those measures don’t go far enough the situation is so dire.  At the end of the day, the only thing that will address the situation will be a global revolution…beyond the scale of that described by Sanders.

    San Francisco — Democrats and activists hoping to stage a presidential primary debate on climate change were dealt a significant blow on Thursday, when a party committee rejected a resolution that would have allowed candidates to participate. 

    Washington State Democratic Chair Tina Powdowlaski authored the resolution, which called on the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to let candidates appear on stage simultaneously in a debate focused on the issue. The proposal, presented to the party’s resolution committee at the DNC’s summer meeting in San Francisco, was defeated by a vote of 17 to 8.

    “What you found [was] a section of individuals who wanted to be able to have a climate debate and talk about all the intersectional issues, whether that’s jobs, whether it’s health care, whether it’s national security,” Powdowlaski told CBS News. “And what they got was a big stop sign from the DNC.”

    DNC’S PHONE (which you have to hunt for on the Internets). I called and left a message after seeing the DNC’s “party platform of 2016, which seems to acknowledge some dedication as concerns climate change.
