Beginning at 5pm EDT today, CNN will interview 10 Democratic presidential candidates regarding their plans to address climate change. Unlike the debates, each candidate will be allotted 40 minutes to answer questions from CNN moderators and a studio audience; together, the forum is expected to last seven hours.

If you’re curious about candidates’ plans to tackle the climate crisis, CNN will live-stream the forum on its website and app, downloadable on iOS and Android devices. (CNN will also provide live-updates.)


According to CNN, only those candidates who qualified for the third debate in Houston will appear tonight, meaning we won’t see Montana Governor Steve Bullock, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio or Hawaii rep. Tulsi Gabbard, among others. Below you’ll find the schedule for the debate, in case you’d rather not sit through all seven hours:

  • 5pm: Julian Castro (to be interviewed by Wolf Blitzer).
  • 5:40pm: Andrew Yang (to be interviewed by Wolf Blitzer).
  • 6:20pm Kamala Harris (to be interviewed by Erin Burnett).
  • 7pm: Amy Klobuchar (to be interviewed by Erin Burnett).
  • 8pm: Joe Biden (to be interviewed by Anderson Cooper).
  • 8:40pm: Bernie Sanders (to be interviewed by Anderson Cooper).
  • 9:20pm Elizabeth Warren (to be interviewed by Chris Cuomo).
  • 10pm: Pete Buttigieg (to be interviewed by Chris Cuomo).
  • 10:40pm: Beto O’Rourke (to be interviewed by Don Lemon).
  • 11:20pm: Cory Booker (to be interviewed by Don Lemon).

And if you want to get up to speed on candidates’ climate change plans ahead of the town hall, several candidates have released new proposals today. Harris released a plan to punish polluters and create agricultural conservation practices. Buttigieg has announced a plan to create 3 million clean energy jobs and for the U.S. to become carbon-neutral by 2050.


To view the rest of the candidates’ plans, visit the Washington Post’s website; they’ve compiled several graphics that spell out each candidate’s stance on proposals like the Green New Deal and whether they support the building of more nuclear power plants.
