MSNBC to host climate forum with 2020 Presidential Candidates.

2 min read

Be still my beating heart.

Two climate forums, one from CNN (who refer to it as a climate crisis town hall) and now, news that MSNBC, along with Our Daily Planet, will host their own climate forum with MSNBC hosts, Chris Hayes, and Ali Velshi, will be moderating. 

CNN will be airing their town hall September 4th and 5th.

MSNBC will be airing the forum September 19th and 20th, per the updated press release from:

The Institute of Politics and Public Service writes:

MSNBC Joins as Media Partner for GU Politics/Our Daily Planet Climate Forum, Now Scheduled for September 19-20

The Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at Georgetown’s McCourt School of Public Policy and Our Daily Planet, an independent environmental news organization, today announced MSNBC as the media partner for “Climate Forum 2020,” a two-day forum featuring 2020 Presidential candidates in conversation with young voters on the issue of climate change. Chris Hayes, host of MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” and Ali Velshi, host of “MSNBC Live,” will moderate the forum. The event will be streamed live on NBC News Now and featured over two nights of special coverage on “All In with Chris Hayes,” which airs weeknights at 8pmET.

All declared 2020 presidential candidates from both political parties have been invited to participate in the town-hall style forum at Georgetown University on Thursday and Friday, September 19th and 20th. [Note new dates.]

Each candidate will begin his/her allotted time by discussing his/her vision for addressing and limiting the effects of climate change in conversation moderated by MSNBC hosts Chris Hayes and Ali Velshi. Candidates will then take questions from students at Georgetown and other DC-area universities, as well as from other partner universities across the country.

Given the massive scale of the climate crisis, the forums will be invaluable to educate and inform on the severity of the problem, and how candidates will deal with the relentless disinformation campaign on the crisis that the GOP will wage during the 2020 campaign.
