Bloomberg News editorial: ‘The Missing Climate Change Debate’ – Issue that ‘actually could bring about an apocalypse’ ignored

For a presidential campaign notable for dark warnings of the coming apocalypse, the one thing that actually could bring about an apocalypse — climate change — has been conspicuously absent from the debates. 
… 

This is difficult to comprehend and harder to justify. It’s not as if it’s an unimportant or uncontroversial issue. In his seven-plus years in office, President Barack Obama has embarked on one climate initiative after another, always to strenuous (and occasionally justified) objections.

In his first term, Obama invested billions in green energy stimulus. In 2014, he negotiated anagreement on greenhouse gas reductions with China, then followed it with the Paris agreementin 2015, in which almost 200 countries pledged to limit emissions. The administration’s Clean Power Plan is the subject of bitter politics and an all-out legal assault.
