In a dramatic about-face, President Trump has announced he will sign up to the Paris agreement to limit climate change after all, and is even demanding stricter goals than the 2°C limit it calls for.
His change of heart reportedly occurred after he asked leading scientists if climate change could be responsible for high gusting winds.
“We told him yes.”
Trump is now arguing that the impact on business of tighter regulation, which he had previously bemoaned, is a small price to pay to ensure that little children and ‘other stuff’ don’t get blown away.
“Climate Change is not a Chinese hoax but a real threat that will leave us dangerously exposed if we don’t take immediate action.”
