Buttigieg on climate change


On Sunday Buttigieg said that when he thinks of climate change, he doesn’t see what the mainstream media typically portrays. He said he doesn’t see a chunk of ice breaking off the Antarctic, but instead, what has happened recently in his hometown of South Bend.

“I see a family in South Bend right before school started trying to figure out what they’re going to do after they’ve been run out of their house by a catastrophic flood,” he said. “The time has ended for us to debate whether climate change is happening, but we need to start talking about it happening in our communities, in the heart of America today.”

Buttigieg also said climate change has to be treated as an emergency and as a security issue in the U.S.
