It's Going To Go Back And Forth: Donald Trump On Climate Change

Trump tells '60 Minutes' that climate change will 'change back again'

"Something's changing and it'll change back again", Trump said.

Trump, who has previously called the worsening phenomenon a hoax, added that he no longer believed that was the case but expressed that he did not believe that it is manmade.

And while he reiterated his change in stance on the legitimacy of climate change, Trump seemed to imply that the climate would fix itself.

He replied: "You'd have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda".

The president took questions on Monday during his visit to Georgia to view the damage caused by Hurricane Michael, one of the strongest storms to hit the United States.

In a "60 Minutes" interview with US-based broadcaster CBS aired on Sunday, Trump said any alterations to the earth's climate would "change back again".

"Look, I think something's happening".

"She really believes in global warming and that's fine, and man's role in climate change and that's okay", Kilmeade said.

Davidson also faced backlash for making a joke about tampering with Grande's birth control on " SNL ". He was seen at a Yankees game with his Grande-inspired neck tattooed covered up with a large heart.

"I don't think it's a hoax. The report makes clear that even a half-degree increase in warming makes a huge difference - damaging our economy and our future", Keith Gaby, senior communications director at the Environmental Defense Fund, told IFLScience, adding: "We think it is possible to limit warming if we act boldly and quickly".

"But I don't know that it's manmade". I don't want to give trillions and trillions of dollars. I do not want to lose millions and millions of jobs'.

Trump claimed in 2012 that global warming was invented as an economic move by "the Chinese".

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.

Host Leslie Stahl and Trump then went back and forth, arguing about how much more destructive hurricanes have become, which the Donald denied.

Trump: They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than what we just had with Michael.


As far as the climate "changing back", temperature records kept by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that the world hasn't had a cooler-than-average year since 1976 or a cooler-than-normal month since the end of 1985.
