It’s abut time these Presidential debates turned to substance: Gun violence. Foreign policy. Climate change. Race relations. Trade.

Joe, even if the candidates are seriously asked about climate change I suspect we won’t see much in the way of deep policy, just a few words from each to outscore the other.

Of greatedt importance is the question: If elected what could Clinton actually promise? If the congressional majority is sceptical (even some Democrat reps are) then how could she literally enact a maningful policy position? I’m not being cynical about Clinton here, it’s simply a fact that she may not have any more political power than Obama to enable national and world leadership… beyond symbolism.

I would like to hear her views on how this political impasse can be overcome. It’s not quite enough for her to believe that the world is imperilled by climate change. What could she actually do, beyond good rhetoric?
