Being a world issue and impacts are emerging, it turns out that the US Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, does not believe in global warming that threatens the Earth where we live. Calling it a costly hoax, Donald Trump often even expressed his opinion to stop believing in global warming.
Though this decade is the hottest decade of all time, with high temperatures, thinning atmosphere and rising sea levels from year to year. Even a lot of endangered animals threatened to extinction as well as already extinct have been caused by global warming.
The most ridiculous, Donald Trump considers that global warming is just a conspiracy theory done by and for China, so that they are not lost in various industries from the United States.
With that view, certainly his candidacy as one of the strongest people on Earth will threaten the safety of the environment. People began to ask a question: does Donald Trump not believe in science?
Here are 11 Donald Trump statements that show themselves 'anti' against the issue of global warming.
1. Donald Trump's statement on climate change in December 2015
Interviewed by Bill O'Reilly on Fox News, Donald Trump called Obama's visit to Paris for the UN Global Warming Conference, was 'ridiculous'. He thinks a lot more important things to do, such as eradicate ISIS.
Asked about the policies the government must make regarding climate change, Donald Trump says climate change is a 'normal' thing. According to him, the rise and fall of Earth's temperature has been going on for millions of years. He even claimed to have a lot of environmental awards, just by believing in the cleanliness of the water and the cleanliness of the air. Plus, global warming is considered a 'fraud' to trap a lot of money.
Donald Trump also does not seem to want to make a policy on the allocation of funds for alternative energy, because it is not profitable in the short term. This will certainly make non-renewable resources exploited more severely.
