Haley: Trump believes 'climate is changing'

Haley: Trump believes 'climate is changing'

In a nationalistic "America First" announcement from the White House Rose Garden on Thursday, Trump said he was withdrawing from a U.N. -backed deal that imposes "draconian financial and economic burdens" on the United States while going too easy on economic rivals China, India and Europe.

Haley's comments come as reporters have been trying to get administration officials to answer a seemingly simple question: does Trump believe in man-made climate change?

In "Great Again: How to Fix Our Crippled America", Trump made a reference to "the mistaken belief that global climate change is being caused by carbon emissions".

The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive.

Haley tells CNN, "President Trum". "That is where we are".

In addition, the EPA director said the president is still committed to work internationally on combating climate change.

Bloomberg, who's a United Nations envoy on climate, added: "Americans will honor and fulfill the Paris Agreement by leading from the bottom up - and there isn't anything Washington can do to stop us".

General Electric Co CEO Jeff Immelt, who is on Trump's manufacturing council, said on Thursday he was disappointed in the decision and added: "Industry must now lead and not depend on government". As well as world outcry, Trump's decision prompted a domestic backlash, with state governors, city mayors and powerful companies already drawing up plans to meet the Paris pact's greenhouse gas emission targets.




"The rest of the world wanted to tell us how to do it", she said.

While announcing the U.S.'s exit from the agreement, ABC News quoted President Trump saying the deal gives other countries an undue advantage at the cost of the US economy and American jobs.

And that's even after Trump decided the US should no longer participate in an worldwide agreement seeking to curb global warming.

The Trump administration has been aggressive in rolling back environmental protections, especially those instituted during the Obama administration.

The White House has stressed that quitting the Paris accord was about getting out of a bad deal that penalized the US but excused other countries that are big polluters.

Asked about CEOs' criticism of the USA withdrawal, White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Friday said some companies that expressed support for remaining in the agreement raised concerns about the emissions reduction targets. When asked in November by The New York Times if he believed human activity was connected to climate change, Trump acknowledged that there is "some connectivity".

"I think what states and what businesses can do is proceed on with their efforts as if his [Trump's] pulling out didn't mean anything", Hoagland said in an interview.

Trump has previously said he believes global warming is a "hoax", and in September 2015 told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, "I'm not a believer in man-made global warming".
