2020 Democratic contender Sen. Kamala Harris' campaign announced Tuesday that she will take part in a Sept. 4 CNN town hall on climate change after initially declining due to a scheduling conflict.

Why it matters: She has said rather little about her climate platform compared to detailed plans from some other top-tier hopefuls.
