CNN is hosting a seven-hour live “Climate Crisis Town Hall” (Sept. 4, 4-11pm CT) that will feature interviews with ten of the top Democratic contenders — including a notable few who have not yet signed the NoKXL Pledge:

  • Vice President Joe Biden, interviewed by Anderson Cooper at 7pm CT.
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar, interviewed by Erin Burnett at 6pm CT
  • Andrew Yang, interviewed by Wolf Blitzer at 4:40 p.m. CT
  • Rep. Beto O’Rourke, interviewed by Don Lemon at 9:40 p.m. CT

Since our coalition delivered a letter three weeks ago urging all of the Democratic presidential candidates to take the “NoKXL Pledge,” we’ve received an amazing response — with TEN candidates taking the pledge so far:

  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren (8/13/19)
  • Gov. Jay Inslee (8/13/19)
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (8/14/19)
  • Tom Steyer (8/15/19)
  • Sec. Julian Castro (8/19/19)
  • Mayor Bill de Blasio (8/19/19)
  • Sen. Cory Booker (8/27/19)
  • Admiral Joe Sestak (8/28/19)
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg (8/28/19)
  • Sen. Kamala Harris (8/29/19)

We reached out to all of the Democratic candidates on Aug. 13, but we haven’t heard back yet with a commitment to take the NoKXL Pledge from former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Andrew Yang, Tulsi Gabbard,
