Climate Change Is Not a Hoax, Trump Says

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump said on Sunday that climate change is not a “hoax” but does not know if it is man-made, adding that it would change back again.

Trump, who had earlier stated that the phenomenon was an “invention” by the Chinese, said that it was not a hoax in an interview with the US CBS network on Sunday.

“I think something’s happening. Something’s changing and it’ll change back again. 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,” said Trump.

He said that scientists “have a very big political agenda,” and he does not want to harm the US economy with environmental policies.

“I don’t wanna give trillions and trillions of dollars. I don’t wanna lose millions and millions of jobs. I don’t wanna be put at a disadvantage,” he said.

As promised in the 2016 presidential election campaign, Trump announced in June 2017 that the US planned to withdraw from the Paris climate accord that was signed by nearly 200 countries in 2015.

He had said that the accord puts the US economy and workers at a permanent disadvantage and hence suspended the country’s climate commitments under the Paris agreement framework, including the target proposed by the former president Barack Obama of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by between 26 and 28 percent as compared to levels in the year 2005.

In early October, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report warned that the temperature may rise 1.5 degrees between 2030-2052 if global warming continues.
