Which Candidate?

The last post caused a bit of a stir. Some object to my selection, others propose alternatives, many emphasize that we must show unity to defeat president dumbass.

I want to know more about where various candidates stand on the climate change issue. For instance: is Kamala Harris the proper next choice based on the climate change issue? She has a 100% lifetime rating from LCV (League of Conservation Voters) but ClimateHawks specifically mentions that despite her unmpeacable environmental record overall, she hasn’t “stepped up” to climate change specifically. Still, she looks pretty good.

What about the other candidates? Please share your thoughts on their suitability on the climate change issue. If you want to comment on their other attributes, I believe the previous thread is still open.

And thanks for sharing.

Important Update:

I have a new #1. Someone mentioned Jay Inslee (governor of Washington state), and I discovered that he is a serious possibility as a candidate. He also has announced that climate change would be the focus of such a campaign. If he’s in the race, he’s the clear #1. So far.
