Buttigieg: Climate Change Fight Maybe Worse than World War II


Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Wednesday called the fight against climate change possibly worse than the global struggle against the Nazis in World War II.

“This is the hardest thing we will have done certainly in my lifetime as a country, this on par with winning World War II,” he said. “Perhaps even more challenging than that.”

Buttigieg lamented during the CNN town hall on climate change that it would be impossible to confront the threat if Americans were still disagreeing about climate change.

“We’ve got to figure out a way to rally and that means everybody,” he said, promising to lead the globe in the ongoing fight against the threat posed by climate change.

Buttigieg said he was “excited” by the idea of using the military to solve the problem of climate change.

“The military has an amazing capacity to rally, to achieve what is being asked of them,” he said.

Buttigieg spoke about the military as a tool for enacting progressive ideas, despite traditionally being thought of as a conservative organization. read more

  1. “Buttigieg said he was “excited” by the idea of using the military to solve the problem of climate change.”

    I agree with him 100% if he means turning their weapons on the LIARS who continue to push this false and largely discredited agenda solely to enrich themselves.

    Maybe we should start by confining AlGore and DiCrapio to Guantanamo to eliminate their behemoth jet-setter carbon footprints.

  2. I call B.S. If global warming (not climate change, which is weather) ever truly were to become a problem, it wouldn’t be solved by brave soldiers storming the sun or bravely shooting your gas-guzzling pickup truck, it will be solved by some M.I.T. brainiac with a clever idea.

    Pete’s got delusions of grandeur.

  3. Since these nitwits claim MAN-MADE climate change, using the military to FIGHT climate change means using the military to fight man in order to “solve the problem.” Climate isn’t in the fight. You can’t fight nature.

  4. Military stopping the mullahs? No.

    Military stopping China threatening allies and trade routes in the South Pacific? Hell, no.

    Military disarming American citizens? Absolutely.

    Military fighting the fucking wind, rain and ebbs of the unceasing ocean tide? Sign him up! A formal declaration of war on Poseidon is being drafted from his bubble bath.

    You’ll get your government issued Speedos with your enlistment to thigh high boot camp at Fire Island.

    Caligula nods.

  5. How about we don’t pick a fight with Mother Nature when she’s on her period and we all get the Obama Medal for Heroic Restraint?

  6. I have a new war movie in the works about using the military to fight climate change. Our brave marines storming Venice beach, with major cases of sunburn downing hundreds of our soldiers due to insufficient sun block. An army battalion stranded outside of Chicago because the Metra was on strike – will they receive relief depending on the Greyhound Bus schedules? The climate able to mount a surprise attack because it was a cloudy day and our solar-powered radar sets had no power to operate. Special Forces conducting search and destroy missions in Indiana looking for caches of hamburgers and rib eye steaks and burning Kokomo to the ground as a reprisal for a barbeque festival.

    Coming to theaters near you – depending on whether or not the wind is turning the windmills.

  7. Where are those genius climate changing humans and why haven’t they changed the climate of my city during the long, miserably cold and snowy winters?

  8. Wyatt, You Insensitive Progressive Jerk! Inspirational! Are you taking suggestions?

    “Marines landing on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula to rescue crying tree huggers who got hit by lighting only to find them smoking dead and their Tesla cars burnt up from battery fires.”

    “Army Rangers with advanced FLIR systems in a blizzard scoping out households still burning that awful black stuff – banned coal! – in their airtights only to have their vehicles get stuck in drifting snow and having to knock on those very same doors asking for help.”
