  • China Tells Donald Trump That Climate Change is Not a Hoax Invented to Harm US

China has given a terse rejoinder to Trump and his claim regarding climate change being a hoax. The Chinese say it is not a hoax perpetrated by their country.

One of the Chinese spokespersons has addressed the concern aired by Donald Trump that China perpetrated the hoax that was climate change. He said that such a claim was laughable since it was in fact Trump’s fellow Republicans who began climate talks way back in the 80s.

US Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush began this game even before China knew what the word “climate change” meant in the first place.

Representatives from over 200 nations gathered in Morocco this week to discuss the issue facing the world today. They are closely watching whether Donald Trump will renege on the United States commitment to the Paris Agreement, according to Bloomberg.

The rich man tweeted in 2012 that global warming was just a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese so that the US manufacturing would slow down. The Chinese however rejected this view and said that there was not a shred of evidence to back it up.

After Reagan’s death in 2004, his Secretary of State, George Schultz became one of the most prominent and vocal critics of pollution and was a voice in the wilderness for putting an end to global warming.

He reiterated that the potential harm that global warming could do to the planet was immense and so something had to be done about it. The Chinese envoy meanwhile said that alternative green technologies would in fact help the US economy.

He hoped that the Republicans would continue in their support of putting the brakes on global warming despite Trump’s rhetoric. Trump’s victory has cast a shadow over the whole process of fighting climate change.

The future remains uncertain seeing Trump’s designs and machinations which are hardly benign. John Kerry has assured the world that the majority of US citizens are environmentally conscious and will not allow a man like Trump to upset the process of a leaner, cleaner and greener world.

He said that no one had the right to make the choice for billions of people all over the world. Meanwhile, President Xi Jinping spoke of how China would continue in its fight against climate change no matter what happened. Any decisions by the United States would have no influence on the national policy of China and its people.
