The president of the United States, Donald Trump, acknowledged today that climate change is not a "deception", but said he does not know if it is caused by man and suggested that the climate "will change again".
The president, who had previously said that this phenomenon was an "invention" of the Chinese, made those statements in an interview with the CBS network.
"I think something is happening, something is changing and it will change again, I do not think it's a trick, I think there's probably a difference, but I do not know if it's caused by man," he said.
However, Trump said that scientists have a "big political agenda" and argued that he does not want to harm the US economy with ecological policies.
"I do not want to give billions of dollars and billions of dollars, I do not want to lose millions and millions of jobs, I do not want to be at a disadvantage," he said.
Fulfilling one of the promises he made in the election campaign that brought him to the Presidency in 2016, Trump announced in June 2017 his decision to abandon the Paris Climate Agreement signed by almost 200 countries at the end of 2015.
At that time, Trump said that this pact put the US economy and workers at "permanent disadvantage."
Thus, the president suspended all climate commitments that had taken the US within the framework of Paris, as the goal proposed by former President Barack Obama to reduce by 2025 greenhouse gas emissions between 26 and 28% with respect to the 2005 levels.
This month, the new report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), established by the UN, warned of the possibility that the temperature rise 1.5 degrees between 2030 and 2052 if global warming keep going.
