Trump “doesn’t believe” in US government report on climate change
The president Trump sharply rejected Monday the conclusions of the detailed report from his own government that warns of the disastrous consequences of climate change on the US economy.
“I don’t believe it,” said the Republican president about the conclusions of the “evaluation” done under the US Congress instructions, written by more than 300 scientists and validated by his own administration.
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.
Monday, in front of journalists in the gardens of the White House, Donald Trump explained that he read only “a little” about this text.
“I saw it, I read a bit, and it’s okay,” he said laconically.
