Democratic Candidates Discuss The Environment at The Climate Townhall

Ten Democratic presidential hopefuls took to the stage in New York City Wednesday night for a climate town hall hosted by CNN.

The event was held less than two weeks after the Democratic National Committee rejected a resolution that would have allowed candidates to participate in a debate focused on the climate crisis.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is facing scrutiny after being questioned about his relationship with the fossil fuel industry.

He also was questioned about his attendance at a fossil fuel executive's fundraiser the following day.

Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders diverged on the issue of nationalizing public utilities and the fossil fuel industry.

Democracy Now! hosts a roundtable with former EPA official Mustafa Ali, journalist Kate Aronoff and Sunrise Movement digital director Mattias Lehman.
