Rural voters understand that climate change is real, and it's happening around us every day. We also recognize that our lifestyle and livelihood are affected by environmental changes.

So what is @PeteButtigieg's record on climate and the environment?

I present a thread:
Under @PeteButtigieg, South Bend committed to the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy, a global coalition of city leaders dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Under @PeteButtigieg, South Bend outfitted its trash collection vehicles to run on lower-emission CNG instead of more polluting diesel fuel. articles.southbendtribune.com/2013-04-22/new…
In another initiative to reduce carbon emissions, under @PeteButtigieg, the city of South Bend invested in solar panels on its convention center. dailyherald.com/amp-article/20…
The city of South Bend, under @PeteButtigieg, filed lawsuits against companies that had polluted the soil and water. southbendtribune.com/news/local/sou…
Moving forward, @PeteButtigieg has vowed to continue to aggressively pursue a green agenda, calling the Green New Deal, "the right start." www-m.cnn.com/2019/02/10/pol…
And he has implored us to call climate change what it is: a national security issue.
It's hard to disagree with @PeteButtigieg when he tells us that, scientifically, the time to act on climate issues was yesterday.
Many leaders in the Democratic Party have been steadfast in their commitment to addressing climate change and environmental protection. This has just been a brief summary of examples that show how @PeteButtigieg has been there standing shoulder to shoulder with his peers. /end
