Trump on Climate change

This is just for the record, so I can read it in 10 or so years times (when I will be 70!), and remember.

The first event that happened was wild fires in California, claiming the lives of nearly 1,000 people, and not in poor slum areas, but in  the well to do quarters of the forested hills around. Interviewed Trump came from the usual side field, when asked if this was an indicator of Climate Change. He described a recent meeting with the Finish PM, who evidently said, the Fins keep their forests clean, they rake them, and they don’t have problems with fires.

The Finish response – with a highly amusing attempt to rake back the sea coming in with sea levels rising.

The next event was a report commissioned by the US government on long term effects of Climate change for example on the US economy.

Trump on own administration’s climate report: ‘I don’t believe it’

“I’ve seen it, I’ve read some of it, and it’s fine,” he said outside the White House on Monday. “I don’t believe it.”

And finally – Trumps great intelligence. ‘Trump on climate change: ‘People like myself, we have very high levels of intelligence but we’re not necessarily such believers.’

Washington Post


DAWSEY: You said yesterday when you were leaving that you were skeptical of a climate change report that the government had done. Can you just explain why you’re skeptical of that report?

TRUMP: One of the problems that a lot of people like myself — we have very high levels of intelligence, but we’re not necessarily such believers. You look at our air and our water, and it’s right now at a record clean. But when you look at China and you look at parts of Asia and when you look at South America, and when you look at many other places in this world, including Russia, including — just many other places — the air is incredibly dirty. And when you’re talking about an atmosphere, oceans are very small. And it blows over and it sails over. I mean, we take thousands of tons of garbage off our beaches all the time that comes over from Asia. It just flows right down the Pacific, it flows, and we say where does this come from. And it takes many people to start off with.
