During CNN's "Climate Crisis" town hall Wednesday night, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said fighting climate change is "on par with winning World War II."

"This is the hardest thing that we will have done in my lifetime, on par with winning World War II, perhaps even more challenging!" said the mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

Former San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro had similarly strange sentiments, calling for "new civil rights legislation to be able to address environmental injustice."

As usual, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) had a plan for everything. "There are a lot of ways that we try to change our energy consumption, and our pollution, and God bless all of those ways. Some of it is with light bulbs, some of it is on straws, some of it, dang, is on cheeseburgers," she said.
