We follow up on Annie Ropeik's reporting on the 2020 Democratic candidates' climate change proposals, and talk about the trends in climate policy discussions, from taxes, to incentives, to new technology, and the improvement of existing infrastructure. We also hear what issues New Hampshire voters think are most important, when it comes to climate change, energy, and the environment.
