  • Donald Trump Admits Some Connection Between Human Activity and Climate Change

Donald Trump is not as rigid as some may think him to be. Apparently, he agrees that there may be some link between global warming and human actions.

Donald Trump conceded this much recently that there does appear to be some sort of connectivity between climate change and the burning of fossil fuels by human beings.

However, he was taciturn regarding whether he would have the US pull out of the Paris Agreement on climate change. Even science and scientists agree on the fact that human activity is responsible for global warming. Yet Trump is adamant that such is not the case.

With this recent admission by Trump maybe he will be changing his stance a little. It might be a softening of his point of view seeing the rampant opposition he is facing.

Yet he is not fully committed to the environmental cause. Besides having the US pull out of the Paris Agreement, Trump has vowed that he will stop any payments to the UN by the US for climate change efforts.

Trump still doubts whether man-made carbon emissions cause climate change in the first place. His admission of any connectivity between the two may be a matter of showmanship where he is just trying to buy more time before the clamor gets too much even for him.

Trump was quoted as saying that he felt there was some connectivity, something that was linking climate change to global warming. Yet he knew not what it was since it depended on a great many factors.

His previous statement that it was a hoax invented by the Chinese is simply too ignorant a saying to even be taken seriously. Trump did say that he would be concentrating on whether the US should withdraw from agreements that it had signed in the past regarding climate change eradication.

Trump added as an afterthought that he was keeping an open mind regarding all this. It was a case of seeing where the trend is going and acting accordingly. Yet Trump is not reversing any of his intentions.

They remain in a hidebound condition. What Trump cannot get over is that reversing the man-made damage to the environment will mean putting the brakes on economic progress.

This may be an unpalatable fact yet it is a necessity. Trump does not want various oil, gas and coal companies to go down as regards the fulfillment of their upward-pointing graph.

The danger that Donald Trump represents for climate change cannot be over-emphasized. Despite his recent wavering on the matter, he will most likely reverse the progress on the environmental front which was President Obama’s legacy.
