Update: Tonight, we'll find out whether the canditates will break the silence on climate change. Join us at 8 PM EST for an online debate watch party, featuring a live chat and a livestreamed youth town hall.
Here at WeArePowerShift, we have Mitt Romney's best interests at heart.
Really, we do. Let me explain. Together with you and the rest of the climate movement in the US, we've been pressuring Romney and Obama to break the silence on climate change. And it turns out that ending the #climatesilence could do both campaigns a lot of good. Here's why:
Both Romney and Obama can count on the diehards of their respective parties. Looking strictly at the polls, loyal Republicans and Democrats don't decide the election; independents do. Independents tipped the scales in Obama's favor last time around, and Romney knows he must recruit them to his camp if he wants to win.
And guess what? Independents heart responsible climate policy!
