Climate change? It comes and goes, Trump says

Climate change? It comes and goes, Trump says

Last week, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a frightening report outlining how the world is headed towards irreversible heating of the planet -and the food shortages, droughts, extreme weather, vanishing coastlines, human deaths, and species extinction it entails - without drastic decreases in carbon emissions. That is sort of progress, right? "But I don't think you should bring your point of view ― she was trying to win over the president with her point of view".

Farmers have a host of "new opportunities" in a bid to help the global effort in reversing climate change, the NFU has said.

He went on to contradict his previous outrageous claims, saying that 'I do not think it is a hoax.

In an interview broadcast Sunday, Trump told CBS-TV's 60 Minutes "I think something's happening". But I don't know that it's man-made. If we can't give it up completely, there needs to be a much greater focus on locally sourced meat, nitrogen-free fertilisers and - dare I say it - vaccines that make cows less, well, windy.

New Democrats and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May argued the Liberal government hasn't done enough to meet its emission reduction targets, let alone meet the more stringent reductions required to keep warming to no more than 1.5 degrees C. They urged the government to take a new leadership role at the United Nations climate change meeting in Poland in December by ramping up its efforts.

Could those conditions "go back", as Trump suggests? "You know, we're talking about over millions of years".

Interviewer Leslie Stahl asked the president: "What about the scientists who say it's worse than ever?" I will say this.

"Scientists have been hammering governments with the evidence for several decades, and it's incontrovertible", Princeton University climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer said.

Trump has said he will withdraw the U.S. from the Paris agreement, an worldwide pact to limit greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, cars and industry.

"We are in crisis mode, and you have an administration that virtually does not even recognize the reality of climate change, and their policies, working with the fossil fuel industry, are making a bad situation worse", Sanders said. "Now I say they're babies". And while economics is less precise than science, here is another for balance: Stanford University researchers this year found that meeting the goals of the Paris deal would save the world tens of trillions of dollars in avoided climate damages, far outweighing most estimated costs.

This may not seem a lot but if we changed our day to day lives and kept to 1.5C, then 10 million fewer people would be exposed to the risks of flooding. "We will need to make changes in our sourcing and use of energy, changes to the way we manage land, changes in our shopping and eating choices, and changes to the way we move around with transportation".

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