Climate Change - EPA/DOE) By: Anthony Conte

What does Trump say? The New Republican President Donald Trump has given his opinion on climate change and it is the wrong response for multiple reasons he says “Unless somebody can prove something to me, I believe there’s weather. I believe there’s change,” In a weird interview Trump said many irrelevant things on global temperatures. Also Trump says that “people in the 1920s thought the Earth was cooling, now it’s global warming,” implying that all climate science is nonsense.

What does Trump's cabinet nominees for each of the departments overseeing your area have to say? As President-elect Donald Trump continues to finish out his cabinet and White House staff. So far all cabinet nominees have no intent on doing anything with climate change and it points to a slow future for addressing climate change or even realizing it as one of the world’s biggest challenges. A large amount of his cabinet nominees, appointees and advisors are denying climate while others have funded the deny of climate change or are on the road on accepting climate change. The Best thing that can happen is that climate action will likely take a bit of a seat compared to any other issues. The Worst is that there could be an assault on climate change.

What do you think will be the impact of the new administration on your chosen area? I think the impact will depend on decisions Trump makes in the future but he has already chosen to cancel last year’s Paris climate agreement which makes around 190 countries to lower their levels of planet-warming carbon dioxide pollution. If Trump doesn't step back from that it makes it much more likely that the world will head into the danger zone with high temperatures in the atmosphere. Trump cannot block other countries from keep doing their Paris agreement and he cant erase Obama’s climate rules that he made while president.

What changes do you think will happen? Changes that I think can possibly happen at worst is he could doom the Paris agreement of reducing carbon dioxide emissions enough to stop an atmospheric warming from a point at which the planet will be stuck into an extreme and dangerous warming worldwide.
