“It would be unconscionable for these issues of grave concern for the people of Florida to not be addressed in the upcoming debate.”
So wrote more than 20 Republican and Democratic mayors in Florida in a letter to moderators of this week’s presidential debates about the need to address climate change. This group of mayors represents coastal cities located from Miami to Tampa that are particularly concerned about sea level rise. The mayors ended their letter by providing three questions on climate and sea level rise for candidates from both parties, who will meet in Miami on March 9th and 10th for the primary debates. Primary voting will take place on Tuesday, March 15.
