I spend a lot of time worrying about climate change and lamenting the inadequacy of most proposed solutions. But it seems I may have been looking for hope in all the wrong places. Rather than reading through dry PDFs I should have been campaigning for global megastar Pitbull!

For those who don’t know, Pitbull writes catchy songs and is very popular. So popular, in fact, that some writers speculate he’ll end up being president. Could he do it? Rolling Stone asked and here’s what he had to say:

As a Miami boy, every year of my life has been about the booty.

Wait, sorry, wrong answer. Here he is on the president thing.

Politics is something I try to stay away from. Am I briefed on what’s going on up there? Can I have sophisticated conversations about it? Yes. Do I think that a lot of it is bullshit? Yes.

Agreed, Pitbull! It is bullshit. Clearly you’ve been briefed. So what benefits would a Pitbull presidency bring?

It would be more like the JFK days. We would be in there partying, having a great time with the most beautiful actresses. The economy would be up, and there would be no war and we wouldn’t have to worry about climate change. So you never know. [my emphasis]

Beautiful actresses in the White House and no climate worries! I think I know who’s got my vote.
