Trump says climate change not a hoax, not sure of its source

Trump says climate change not a hoax, not sure of its source

"I think they overestimate", Kudlow said of the United Nations report, which found that policy changes must proceed at an unprecedented pace in the next 12 years to stop temperatures from rising more than 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit above Earth's preindustrial temperature. I mean, we're up USD10.7 (trillion) - USD11.7 trillion, since I got elected. That is sort of progress, right? Maintaining that climate will "change back again", he accused scientists of having a "very big political agenda". "I don't think it's a hoax".

"I don't think it's a hoax, I think there's probably a difference", he told journalist Lesley Stahl.

"Other nations - as an example, China - not that I wish this, but they're down many trillions of dollars". I don't want to lose millions and millions of jobs ...

With Trump's moves, changes in climate will not be reversed, they will intensify.

The report's full name is "Global Warming of 1.5°C, an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty".

Mr Trump added that temperatures "could very well go back" - although he did not say how.

Hassol, who has worked in climate communications for three decades, said Trump's claims are basically a variation of the most popular talking point for climate contrarians, the notion that the climate is always changing and therefore humans can't do anything about it, like curb their use of fossil fuels.

Trump replied: I'm not denying climate change. I will say this. According to U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data, there hasn't been a cooler-than-average year since 1976.

The report says the world needs to aim to hold the warming to no more than 1.5 degrees C but that marker will be upon us by 2040 if drastic, global action isn't taken. "A lot of people smile when they hear that", Trump said, claiming he wants "crystal clean water" and "the cleanest air on the planet". Economists have shot down that argument repeatedly, saying that the sooner global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, the lower the cost of dealing with climate impacts.

"Looking in the debris, seeing photos of grandkids, people that we know that have come back here year after year, that's the emotional side", he said.

The plaintiffs say in the lawsuit that extreme weather events, such as flooding, caused them emotional trauma and damage to their health, safety, cultural practices, food security and economic stability.

Numerous world's major cities, including London, Miami and Singapore could find themselves compromised by the combined effects of tide, storm surge or extreme weather systems.

To bring these down, we need to talk about meat and how much of it we consume.

Trump in the past has dismissed claims - backed by an overwhelming worldwide consensus of scientists - that greenhouse gases caused by human activity are responsible for a rapidly warming planet, triggering ever more extreme weather.
