What could possibly be worse than having another Democratic presidential debate where a bunch of far-Left candidates echo sound bites trashing America and President Trump? Perhaps a newly announced seven-hour town hall hosted by CNN on climate change.
CNN will be allowing ten candidates 40 minutes each to speak, taking the stage one after another.
Ten Democratic presidential hopefuls will appear in New York at back-to-back town halls on Wednesday, September 4, taking audience questions about their climate plans as scientists sound the alarm about global warming.
Global warming would have several devastating consequences. It would cause coastal cities to disappear under water, leaving hundreds of millions of people displaced and forced to migrate to dry areas. Some plants and animals would face extinction, and drought would result in lower crop yields.
The latest warning signs of a climate crisis include meteorologists recording July 2019 as the hottest month ever recorded on Earth and Greenland lost 12.5 billion tons of ice to melting on August 2, the largest single-day loss in recorded history.
The town halls will air exclusively on CNN, CNN International, CNN en Español, CNN.com’s homepage, across mobile devices via CNN’s apps for iOS and Android, via CNNgo apps for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast and Android TV, SiriusXM Channels 116, 454, 795 and the Westwood One Radio Network.

In case you're wondering, the reason CNN's presidential climate forum is seven hours long is because the DNC won't allow CNN or any other network to hold a climate debate, which would inevitably be shorter https://t.co/bhdPstMvjW

Several people online could not fathom watching CNN for seven hours in a year, let alone seven hours straight.
“Seven hours? If you take away airport delays, people don’t average seven hours of CNN a year,” radio host and Senior Contributor to the Federalist Jesse Kelly tweeted.
“I can’t stop laughing about CNN tanking in the ratings and responding with a seven-hour infomercial on climate change,” Kelly added in another tweet.
