CNN’s climate town hall: Takeaways and what it means for 2020 – CNNPolitics

CNN’s marathon town hall Wednesday night put the climate crisis closer to the center of a presidential election than ever before.

Ten Democratic candidates took to the stage as Hurricane Dorianmenaced the East Coast and at a time when the impact of a warming Earth is no longer just a vision of a catastrophic future but is increasingly visible.
At times, candidates waged a bidding war to show liberal activists their plan was the most audacious — and even expensive. But with an eye on November 2020, others warned against throwing the economy out of the window.
The contenders, who all embrace the science of climate change, offered voters an alternative to a President who views climate change as a “hoax” and slams their “dreams and windmills.”
