has been noted relentlessly this week, Monday evening's third and

time since the 1980s that
American presidential or vice presidential contenders were neither
asked about, nor inclined to offer up on their own, opinions on
climate change and what ought to be done about it.
environmentalists -- and many ordinary Americans -- it seemed a
rather discouraging milestone, particularly as a gargantuan
of the sort that virtually all climate scientists have

to slam headlong into the East Coast in a couple days' time.
"Hurricane Sandy," wrote Daniel Honan at
"Mother Nature's revenge on the 2012 election?"
Radford, the executive director of Greenpeace USA, suggested the
absence of high level discussion of climate change at the debates was
inexcusable. "I just think it's irresponsible for our leaders to
not address one of the biggest challenges facing our generation,"
he said in a phone call on Friday. "It's one of the biggest
security threats we have -- it's a threat to agriculture, it
threatens our economy. And to simply not talk about it is one of the
biggest failures of our leadership."
