The University of Miami will be hosting the Republican debate on March 10. To date, debate moderators have yet to raise the issue of climate change for the GOP candidates to answer. There have been some softballs thrown at Marco Rubio, which accounts for just a couple of minutes of coverage.
On March 4 of 2016, 21 mayors from Miami to Tampa have publicly pleaded with debate moderators to ask questions on how the candidates will deal with sea level rise. Florida is the first state to get a kick in the shorts, but it will affect every single coastal community on the planet at some point. I believe Florida deserves a detailed explanation from all candidates on what steps they will take to prepare for the inevitable destruction, evacuation and relocation of millions of people. If the question is not asked in Miami, exactly where will this issue ever be raised?
