"AP Fact Check: Trump Misses On Storms, Science, Clean Air"

"WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump in his interview with The Associated Press said he has “a natural instinct for science.” But what he said about hurricanes, clean air and climate doesn’t quite get the science right.

More than a dozen scientists, economists and climate negotiators pointed out where his comments didn’t fit with the reality of human-caused climate change, hurricanes and air pollution."

Trump was wrong to suggest that scientists are split on the recent IPCC report on dangerous warming. They are not.

He was misleading to say few hurricanes have hit the U.S. recently, since recent hurricane have become more destructive.

He was wrong to say that the Paris Climate Agreement put the U.S. at an economic disadvantage. It does not.
