That’s James Dozier, executive director of Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions, a nonprofit that tracks voter views on climate and energy.

His group is helping kick-start that conversation in New Hampshire and South Carolina by briefing the Republican presidential candidates about where voters stand on climate and energy issues.
