If we don’t take action, smoke-filled stadiums, flooded soccer pitches, parched tennis courts, and dry ski slopes are all in our future. Watching sports in 2020 is an unusual experience. Supporters didn’t get to see the Olympics in 2020, but they saw a basketball “bubble” with virtual fans and a Premier League with fake cheering.

As we approach planetary tipping points, it’s vital to understand the two candidates’ plans—or lack thereof (Trump doesn’t have one)—for combatting climate change.
