“Campaign 2020: A Peek Into Biden’s Climate Task Force”

“Common ground is emerging after the second meeting of the joint climate task force devised by Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden, according to one participant.

Varshini Prakash, a co-founder of the Sunrise Movement who was appointed to the task force by Sanders, the Vermont independent, said the first two meetings have been “encouraging” and left her “cautiously optimistic.”

After becoming the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Biden suggested he would expand his climate plan and agreed to form six policy task forces with Sanders supporters in an attempt to bridge the divide between the party's progressive and centrist wings.

The comments from Prakash, a vocal Biden critic during the primary, suggest Biden's overtures to the left have made some headway.”
