Trevor Noah Buzzkill: Global Warming More Important than Who’s Next House Speaker

‘Back in 2015, I honestly thought the future hinged on who would be House Speaker, not the fight against climate change, now get your scuba gear on and come down to dinner’

NOAH: “Yeah, Speaker of the House. Of course. The job no Republican wants because the party is so fractured. Including Paul Ryan. He was definitely out of the running. But now he might be back in. What changed his mind?”
RYAN [video]: “My greatest worry is the consequence of not stepping up. Of some day having my own kids ask me, ‘When the stakes were so high, why didn’t you do all you could do? Why didn’t you stand and fight for my future when you had a chance to do so?’”
NOAH: “Do you really think this is what your kids are going to be asking you in the future? And what is your reply, ‘What can I say, kids. Back in 2015, I honestly thought the future hinged on who would be House Speaker. Not the fight against climate change. Now get your scuba gear on and come down to dinner.’”
