Climate Change Matters in the 2016 Election

Presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump hold radically different views on climate change and how - if at all, in Trump’s case - the issue should be addressed. The Earth has had three record hot years in a row with deadly heat waves scorching cities, sea level rise swamping coastlines and diseases threatening public health. Government action can make a difference on climate issues, as evidenced by the Reagan-approved Montreal Protocol and George H.W. Bush’s campaign to reduce acid rain. For not just America but the world, climate change matters in this election. (AP)
