Donald Trump Doesn't Think 'Science' Knows What It's Talking About With Climate Change

Donald Trump Doesn't Think 'Science' Knows What It's Talking About With Climate Change

Donald Trump has pushed back against climate change science during a briefing on the Californian wildfires.

California has been badly hit by dozens of fires that have destroyed thousands of properties and claimed several lives.

The US President travelled to the state to listen to Californian Governor Gavin Newson and other experts about how the fires are progressing and what can be done to stop them being so ferocious in the future.

He was told by Natural Resources Agency Secretary Wade Crowfoot that he needed to 'recognise the changing climate and what it means to our forests'.

After explaining how summers and winters have been getting warmer year and year, the President quipped back, saying: "It'll start getting cooler, you just watch."

After the meeting, Mr Crowfoot expressed his dismay at Mr Trump not listening to their concerns.

"I have to I have to let the president speak for himself," he said. "I think we weren't encouraged by what we heard as at least it relates to acknowledging climate change.

"But in California, again, we're not going to put our head in the sand. We need to take action. We can take action now that will protect California communities and grow our economy. And that's what really we will continue to communicate with the president, because it's a message that needs to be heard."

"We can't wait and see. We need to do all that we can to protect California's communities. Now, this doesn't have to be a partizan issue. Science, again, tells us that that this climate change is driving this catastrophic fire experience that we're having this summer."

But it's not just California that is bearing the brunt of all the wildfires.

The total damage across several western states is estimated to be around 4.6 million acres.
