Buttigieg on climate change


“What the world is going to look like in the 2050s isn’t just something I’m just something I think about or write about, or wonder about,” Buttigieg, 37, told host Chris Wallace in Claremont, N.H. “It’s hopefully going to be my life, too.” 

The mayor talked about the need to tackle issues such as climate change and the deficit to prevent crises for future generations — and the younger members of current ones.

“That’s why making sure we do something about climate change, making sure we actually have a fiscally sustainable path,” he said. “These problems will be visited on the heads of not just my children or my grandchildren, but me, and people in my generation too, and I think it gives me an ability to speak to those issues.”
