Buttigieg on climate change


“I think where you’re seeing a shift in opinion is because [military spending] is beginning to come up against other things that are security issues. To me, climate change is a security issue.”

Buttigieg said there have been two moments, 18 months apart, when he needed to enact emergency protocol as mayor in South Bend, and both came as a result of extreme floods.

“Climate change is right now, today,” he said. “The best time to have met carbon emission goals in the U.S. was yesterday.”
