Buttigieg on climate change


During CNN’s climate change town hall on Wednesday night, Buttigieg called global warming a “sin.” To explain that assertion to Colbert, the candidate noted that the environment emerges a number of times in the Episcopalian Book of Common Prayer. “The biggest problem with climate change isn’t just the planet … it’s that we are hurting people,” he said. “I can’t imagine that God will let us off the hook for hurting future generations any more than hurting someone right next to you.”
