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!

In an interview on 60 Minutes last night, President Donald Trump backpedaled on his stance that climate change is a hoax, but he didn't go so far as to acknowledge the reality of climate change and its potentially disastrous effects on the planet. I think there's probably a difference.

US President Donald Trump has again expressed doubt over whether rising global temperatures are being caused by humankind and accused scientists studying climate change of pursuing a "political agenda". "I don't think it's a hoax". "Man-made or not, I mean there's something there". I don't wanna lose millions and millions of jobs.

Stahl wanted to change the subject but Trump would not be dissuaded, nailing it down by stating, "In the meantime, I'm president and you're not". So naturally, he's made the same wisecrack several times, until even those who might've found it amusing the first time, MUST think it's overdone by now.

Just last week the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), an arm of the United Nations, released a dire report saying that the world must limit global warming to a rise of 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels, as a rise of 2 degrees as targeted by the Paris Agreement would be far more harmful and ultimately more costly. It isn't too late, but we need to act sooner rather than later. "Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming".

Temperature records kept by Nasa and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show that the world has not had a cooler-than-average year since 1976 or a cooler-than-normal month since the end of 1985.
