Miami, FL: In response to the second night of the Democratic Primary Debate, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from SVP of Government Affairs, Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“Tonight the moderators did a somewhat better job than last night giving the climate crisis and clean energy solutions the attention they deserve. This issue is a higher priority for voters than ever before and we are encouraged by the detailed policy platforms a few candidates were able to present. But to be clear, this is just the beginning of what must be a deeper, more robust discussion of how the candidates will enact their bold, ambitious plans to fight the climate crisis starting on Day One of their Presidency. There is still much more to talk about and these debates did not go far enough. That’s why we will continue to push for a greater focus on climate–not just in the debates, but every day out on the campaign trail.”
