To the editor:

The DNC is not winning votes in my precinct by telling Democratic candidates to avoid talking about the issue and not by threatening a viable progressive Democratic candidate who wants a debate on the issue.

You must stop pretending we can avoid this issue. Our young voters from, first timers in 2020 to Millennials through Gen X are adamantly waiting for you old fogies (sorry, but facts are facts, this is their state of mind) to tackle this deadly planet-wide issue head on, and they will not give money or time to candidates who avoid talking about solutions like “Put A Price On It.”

In addition, voters in their senior years want their Democratic candidates and their elected representatives talking about and working on this issue too. I am in my 70s. My generation in Minnesota had good educations. We sorrow for the harm climate change has made happen in our world. We won’t respect politicians who avoid working on this issue.
