The President is once again discussing the very serious topic of global warming without actually doing his homework. Donald Trump stopped by ’60 Minutes,’ and while there, he confessed he believes climate change is not a result of human actions and it will reverse itself naturally, or in his words, ‘go back.’
At least he no longer claims that climate change is nothing more than a hoax started by China. That is sort of progress, right?
‘I think something is happening. Something is changing and it will change back again,’ he stated.
He went on to contradict his previous outrageous claims, saying that ‘I do not think it is a hoax. I think there is probably a difference. But I do not know that it is man-made. I will say this: I do not want to give trillions and trillions of dollars. I do not want to lose millions and millions of jobs.’
Even though it seems like he finally recognizes that global warming is a real issue, Trump believes no action should be taken because the climate will eventually fix itself!
‘I’m not denying climate change. But it could very well go back. You know, we are talking about over a … millions of years.’
He could not be more wrong because as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change made very clear in a new report, there are about ten more years left before the effects of climate change will become irreversible.
Host Leslie Stahl and Trump then went back and forth, arguing about how much more destructive hurricanes have become, which the Donald denied.
‘What about the scientists who say it’s worse than ever?’ Stahl inquired.
‘You would have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda,’ Trump replied.
