President Trump: Climate Change is NOT Manmade, Scientists Have Political Agenda

President Trump says scientists behind climate change data have a 'political agenda'

President Donald Trump has spoken out against Climate Change alarmists to say that humans are not responsible for the Earth's changing temperates, and that "it will change back" naturally.

Speaking during an interview on CBS's 60 Minutes, the president also accused the scientists behind the data, that suggests Global Warming is manmade, of having a "political agenda."

Trump also clarified his stance on Climate Change - as his critics often accuse him of denying its existence - saying that he doesn't believe it is a hoax; the Earth's temperature rises and falls naturally but not due to manmade causes.

The president's comments follow a damning report from earlier this month that raised major questions about the scientific data that has been used to promote Climate Change.

As Neon Nettle previously reported, the first ever audit on the official data used for Climate Change has found the figures to be "riddled with errors," making it "effectively useless."

The world's most important temperature data, HadCRUT4, is used by international governmental bodies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on climate change  (IPCC).

This dataset is what the dramatic claims about “man-made Global Warming” are based on, with governments using the data to justify spending trillions of dollars on “combating climate change” while it's also the basis for the Paris Climate Accord.

For the first time, however, the data has been audited by Australian researcher John McLean, who says it’s far too inaccurate to be taken seriously, even by climate scientists.

According to a groundbreaking analysis by McLean, the figures should never have been used by a body as influential as the IPCC or by the governments of the world.

“It’s very careless and amateur,” he says.

“About the standard of a first-year university student.”

What did President Trump say about Climate Change?

According to the BBC, during Sunday's interview, Mr. Trump cast doubt on making any changes, saying the scientists "have a very big political agenda."

"I don't think it's a hoax, I think there's probably a difference," he told journalist Lesley Stahl.

"But I don't know that it's manmade.

"I will say this. I don't want to give trillions and trillions of dollars.

"I don't want to lose millions and millions of jobs.

"I don't want to be put at a disadvantage."

Mr. Trump added that temperatures "could very well go back" naturally, without human interference.

What has Mr. Trump previously said about climate change?

Mr. Trump declared that climate change was a hoax during his election campaign in 2016, but he has generally avoided taking a clear stance on the issue since taking office.

However, he announced the US would withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, which commits another 187 other countries to keep rising global temperatures "well below" 2C above pre-industrial levels and "endeavor to limit" them even more, to 1.5C.

At the time, Mr. Trump said he wanted to negotiate a new "fair" deal that would not disadvantage US businesses and workers.

It sparked speculation that the 45th US President had stood by his belief that climate change data was invented.

However, Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, later said Mr. Trump "believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of the equation."
