7. Watched the debates last night

Climate change was discussed but not nearly enough, especially since it will probably have an effect on Florida before much of the rest of the country. As for Clinton getting religion on fracking. I wouldn't count on that if I were you. She's a corporate dem, and backed heavily by the fossil fuel industries.

~~~
Hillary Clinton continues to fundraise with fracking investors, despite her assertion Sunday that she would largely curtail fracking inside the U.S.

Fracking is a controversial mining technique used to extract natural gas from shale rock. It releases vast quantities of methane into the atmosphere and groundwater, frequently poisoning the water supply of nearby communities.

On Wednesday, Clinton will appear at a $575-a-head fundraising lunch at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel on the Northern California coast hosted by Alisa Wood, a partner at the international private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR).

Even if she says she will stop fracking, which she hasn't, I would never believe her.
