Many eyes were on Orlando, Florida this weekend as they Democratic National Committee (DNC) converged to vote on the Party Platform. The platform is meant to serve as a navigator for Democratic candidates running for office at all levels of government, as well as a statement of party unity.

Picture this: Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are on their way to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Each of them is leading a delegation of thousands of elected officials, volunteers and delegates. And they’re setting the agenda for our climate and energy economy when they meet.

It could be said of the last three Presidential debates (for both parties) that “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” The good news is that climate change made appearances at all three most recent debates — on both sides of the aisle. As I previously reported, the Flint debate included great questions on climate change, due largely to the […]

Last week I delivered 100,000 petition signatures to the Democratic National Committee with friends from Color of Change, Daily Kos, Climate Hawks Vote, Friends of the Earth, Honor the Earth and the HBCU Climate Change Initiative. I must admit that I was skeptical. Even after we spoke with the DNC’s Deputy Communications Manager, who gave us assurances that Flint was not […]

The presidential election to succeed President Obama kept rolling last night as New Hampshire held the nation’s first primary for both major parties.
