Buttigieg Calls for Bipartisan Action on Climate Change
One student asked Buttigieg what he plans to do to address environmental concerns. The Democratic hopeful said a bipartisan effort is needed to effectively reverse the effects of climate change. He emphasized that climate change is not something that will happen in the future, but that it’s happening now.
“Charleston certainly knows it real. You see it with the rising sea levels and the higher frequency of more intense hurricanes,” he said. “Climate change is not theoretical. This is something both sides should be in a competition to develop the best plan to address climate change. It affects us all, both Democrats and Republicans, so we need to work together to formulate a plan.”
