My new post: I’m not entirely convinced that Democrats should hold a climate debate, but if they do, they should make it a good one. Here are 10 questions for moderators, focused on what counts: power and policy. vox.com/energy-and-env…
One question that didn't make the list (figured I'd call it out before someone yells at me about it): innovation! What is it, actually, and what kind of policies spur it?
In researching today's piece, I remembered waaay back in Nov. 2007, when @Grist & @LCV co-hosted a climate & energy forum for Democratic candidates -- exactly what people are proposing today. Clinton, Edwards, & Kucinich showed up. I co-moderated. grist.org/article/forum2/
It looks like the video has vanished (thank jebus) but the transcript is still available: grist.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/grist_…
My one clear memory from that whole episode is Dennis Kucinich's incredibly firm handshake. He's a small guy, but in person, he *radiated* health & vitality. Plus he was accompanied by his towering, beautiful super-genius redhead wife, so ... an altogether striking couple!
