Donald Trump's contradictions on climate change

Donald Trump, president of the United States, recognized that climate change is not a"cheated", but he does not know if it is caused by man and suggested that the climate "will change again ".

Long ago, Trump said that climate change was a phenomenon invented by the Chinese, today, it begins to assume its existence. "I think something is happening. Something is changing and will change again. I don't think it's a hoax, I think there is probably a difference. But I don't know if it is caused by man "he commented.
Trump claimed that scientists have a"Great political agenda" and argued that he does not want to harm the US economy with green policies.
I don't want to give billions of dollars and billions of dollars. I don't want to lose millions and millions of jobs. I don't want to be at a disadvantage "he declared.

The Paris Agreement

It is well known that Trump in June 2017 announced his decision to abandon the Paris climate agreement signed by almost 200 countries by the end of 2015. At that time he argued that the pact put in"Permanent handicap" to the economy and workers of the country.

As early as November 2012, he wrote on his Twitter account: "The concept of climate change was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing uncompetitive." He then said he was joking about the connection to the Chinese, but years later he has continued to say that climate change is a sham..

By abandoning the Paris Agreement, all the climate commitments that the United States had assumed were suspended, such as the goal proposed by former President Barack Obama of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by between 26 and 28% with respect to levels 2005.

This month, the new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), established by the UN, warned of the possibility of the temperature rising 1.5 degrees between 2030 and 2052 if global warming keep going.
