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 and attendance at a fossil fuel executive's fundraiser the following day, while Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders diverged on the issue of nationalizing public utilities and the fossil fuel industry. We host a roundtable with former EPA official Mustafa Ali, journalist Kate Aronoff and Sunrise Movement digital director Mattias Lehman.
