Campaign 2020: Democrats Bridge Climate Divide, Focus On Green New Deal

“The yearlong brawl among Democrats about how to tackle climate change has produced a counterintuitive result: The divided party seems to be working more closely than ever.

Environmental activists and establishment Democrats were feuding two months ago over who should challenge a president who rejects climate science. Since then, there's been a flurry of coalitions and partnerships launched to heal the party's internal wounds.

It's a sign that the party's climate machine is roaring to life in ways not seen in 2016, or perhaps ever.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, capped the first month of his general election campaign by inviting Green New Deal advocates to help rewrite his climate plan.”
