Donald Trump said Monday “not to believe” the conclusions of a major US government report warning of the negative consequences of climate change on the economy.
“I do not believe it,” said the climate-skeptical president about the “evaluation” commissioned by the US Congress and written by more than 300 scientists.
According to this document released Friday, the United States could lose “hundreds of billions of dollars” by the end of the century because of greenhouse gases.
Donald Trump explained that he read “a little bit” the document.
“We have never been cleaner than we are now. And that’s very important to me. But if we are clean, and all the other places are dirty, it’s not so good, “the US president told reporters from the White House.
“Given the historic level of greenhouse gas emissions, losses in the United States could reach hundreds of billions of dollars in several sectors by the end of the century,” warned Friday the latest “National Climate Assessment “.
Donald Trump had already questioned last year’s study. Just before Thanksgiving last week, he once again used the weather to prove his skepticism about the weather.
“The brutal and prolonged cold wave can beat ALL THE RECORDS – What has become of global warming?”, He pretended to wonder in a tweet.
