A global heat wave. Extreme rainstorms. Severe droughts. Rapidly intensifying Gulf Coast storms. The deadliest wildfire in California history. And a presidential administration that’s trying to make the problem worse. David Leanhardt,  NYT’s Op-Ed Columnist

Climate change gets a network’s spotlight

“NBC devoted the full hour of December 30 “Meet the Press” to climate change, featuring an interview with Michael Bloomberg vowing to elevate its role in the White House race.”

“We’re not going to debate climate change, the existence of it. The Earth is getting hotter. And human activity is a major cause, period. We’re not going to give time to climate deniers. The science is settled, even if political opinion is not.”

— Chuck Todd at the open of today’s show

“Bloomberg said he’ll work to ensure that 2020 Democratic presidential candidates offer strong proposals on climate.”

“I don’t know whether I’m going to run or not, but I will be out there demanding that anybody that’s running has a plan. And I want to hear the plan, and I want everybody to look at it and say whether it’s doable.”
— Bloomberg on “Meet the Press”
