Environmentalists are pressuring the moderators of the presidential debates to spend more time asking Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton about climate change in the coming debates.

The League of Conservation Voters and a collection of other environmental groups said on Friday that they have gathered 100,000 signatures of people who want moderators to ask more climate change questions.

“As the moderators of the 2016 presidential debates, you have the opportunity to ask questions about the most pressing issues facing our country — and climate change must be at the top of the list,” the petition reads.

The first presidential primary debate will be held Monday night. It will be moderated by NBC News’ Lester Holt.

Climate change made its way into nearly every Democratic presidential primary debate but was just barely raised in the numerous Republican debates.
