What Position Does Trump Administration Take On Climate? All Of Them.

"There was never really much doubt that Donald Trump doubted the science of climate change. He had tweeted to that effect repeatedly before becoming president. He told this publication he wasn’t a 'big believer' in human-caused climate change.

That he has now used a bout of cold weather to mock climate change — committing the most basic of errors on the topic, which is to confound any given day’s weather and with long-term trends in climate — should not come as a surprise.

What’s been more surprising, however, is the wide variety of positions taken by the broader Trump administration on the matter — where nobody but the president seems to talk like the president, and where at times, it isn’t even clear whether other members of the administration are representing Trump’s views."
