That "screaming heat skull of death" appeared on a weather map over France on June 20th. Temperatures reached 104° Fahrenheit. Still, this heat wave was nothing compared to the 2003 one that killed 15,000 people across France.
Now U.S. presidential hopeful Mayor Pete Buttigieg is vowing to create a National Climate Corps if elected. He cites the U.S. military, the Peace Corps, and AmeriCorps as inspiration for his National Climate Corps -- which would more than QUADRUPLE the service opportunities available to high schoolers and recent graduates.
As much as Nokosee and I like this guy, I don't think he has a chance in America no matter how smart he is or how much he would make a great president. Despite serving six years in Navy Intel and deploying to Afghanistan for six months and being a popular South Bend, Indiana mayor (since 2012), this charming 37-year-old is openly gay and married. That's all it takes for his party to disqualify him from representing them against Trump because sadly, the Democrats want someone "safe," who isn't too radical in politics or life.
Which is exactly opposite of what this country and Gaia need. Playing it safe won't save us from a world on fire.
