We are only THREE DAYS AWAY from #ClimateForum2020

Our partners, Ali Velshi and Chris Hayes of MSNBC will be posing questions for about 30 minutes to each of the Presidential candidates who are attending.  What should they ask?  We want to know what you think!  If you have a question you think they should ask, send it to us at climateforum@ourdailyplanet.com.  Please share this request for questions with friends, family, and co-workers!  The more questions we receive, the better!

And one other exciting thing we want to announce!

We want to turn over Our Daily Planet to students on Thursday and Friday!  We are holding a contest to fill our pages.  Any student who wants to enter should submit a 300-word essay on the topic:  “Why Does Presidential Action on Climate Change Matter.”  We will choose 10.  Students can send essays to monica@ourdailyplanet.com by 6 pm Tuesday, and we will let them know on Wednesday if we choose it!  300 words is the limit so short and sweet!

Please put ESSAY in the subject line so we know to look for those!  The contest is limited to current students – please put your school and age at the top of the essay.
