”I Don’t Believe It”-Trump on Climate Change

President Donald Trump on Monday refutes the findings of a serious report about the economic costs of climate change that was released by his own administration.

He told reporters “I don’t believe it,” outside the White House before boarding Air Force One for a flight to Mississippi.

The president also tried to put the blame for global warming on China, Japan and “all these other countries.”

Trump claimed “Right now, we’re the cleanest we’ve ever been,”.

The White House delivered the 1,700-page report the day after Thanksgiving, which many critics have said was an obvious trial to cover the astonishing findings.

The report, produced by scientists from 13 federal agencies, concluded the United States would warm at least 3 more degrees by 2100 unless the use of fossil fuels was dramatically reduced. It also linked climate change to other environmental issues, like record-breaking wildfires and storms, and warned of negative effects on the economy and American livelihoods.

Several Republican senators playedown the report and resisted that federal efforts to lower climate change could “devastate” the economy.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) said on NBC “I think if we’re going to move away from fossil fuels, it’s got to be done through innovation. And innovation can be choked out through excessive government regulation. We can’t let that happen,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

The U.S. has heated approximately 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit in the past century, and 2017 was the country’s second-hottest year in history. Last year, the U.S. used a record of $306 billion on climate-related disasters.

Trump, who has rolled back countless Obama-era climate protections and has moved to expand oil drilling in U.S. waters, declared last year that the U.S. would withdraw from the 2015 Paris accord to combat climate change.
