This is fundamentally the most important issue the world faces today and no one running for President this cycle has addressed it. Trump's comments are as puerile as we've come to expect from him. But what keeps others from addressing this? Why didn't Clinton address this last night?

In January 2015, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists set their Doomsday Clock at three minutes to midnight. Their executive director, Kennette Benedict, announced that the world was closer to catastrophe as "unchecked climate change and a nuclear arms race resulting from modernization of huge arsenals pose extraordinary and undeniable threats to the continued existence of humanity."
