Now, Trump backtracks on climate change

23-Nov-2016 :

Washington: Donald Trump signaled Tuesday his campaign trail dismissal of the threat of climate change may have been hot air after all, saying he was “open minded” on supporting global accords.

The US president-elect emerged from cabinet-building talks in his Trump Tower headquarters and travelled ten minutes across town to the New York Times to give a wide-ranging interview on his plans.

He disavowed “alt-right” activists who hailed his election as a victory for white supremacy, distanced himself from calls to prosecute Hillary Clinton and defended his global business empire.

And he appeared to soften his pledge to pull the United States out of accords like last year’s COP21 Paris Agreement, that binds countries to national pledges to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
