Trump Thinks Climate Will Change Back Again on its Own and Climate Scientists Are Conspiring for Pol
The only saving grace from President Trump's interview on 60 Minutes was that he admitted that climate change wasn't a hoax. But, in classic fashion, he then went on to suggest that it may not be caused by greenhouse gases, that the climate will change back on its own, and that the problem might just be a conspiracy concocted by climate scientists. It was painful to watch and clearly signals that last week's UN climate report won't stop his efforts to roll back Obama-era policies meant to fight global warming.
Guardian: "The US president has long questioned man-made global warming. In an interview with CBS programm[e] 60 Minutes that aired Sunday night, he said that he no longer believes climate change is a hoax, as he tweeted in 2012."
“I think something’s happening. Something’s changing and it’ll change back again,” he said. “I don’t think it’s a hoax. I think there’s probably a difference. But I don’t know that it’s man made. I will say this: I don’t want to give trillions and trillions of dollars. I don’t want to lose millions and millions of jobs.”
And when asked about the warnings by climate scientists about warming oceans and stronger hurricanes he unleashed his new conspiracy theory saying, “you’d have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda.” He didn't suggest what that political agenda might be and it's difficult to image scientists from all over the world involved in a decades-long conspiracy to scare people into reducing fossil fuel consumption.
