October 2016 - Climate change and nuclear weapons pose the greatest threats to life on Earth. Despite this, the major candidates’ positions on these critical issues have not been well covered in the media.
A) Hillary Clinton has steadfastly supported the prevailing US nuclear weapons policies including a treaty with Russia to reduce our nuclear weapons. When asked about the proposed $1 trillion Nuclear Modernization Program last spring, she said: "Yeah. I heard about that. I'm going to look into it. It doesn't make sense to me.”
On climate change, she has supported President Obama's policies of decreasing CO2 emissions from vehicles and power plants.
B) Donald Trump has called for a huge military buildup, "starting with nuclear weapons." And he claims that climate change is a “hoax by the Chinese”, so there's no need to do anything about that.
Talk about these issues with your friends and write a letter to the editor of a local, regional, or national paper. Point out the major candidates’ vast differences on climate change and nuclear weapons—two issues at the heart of every American’s personal security and our collective national and global security.
