Fact check: Donald Trump's claims versus climate science

He went on to contradict his previous outrageous claims, saying that 'I do not think it is a hoax. "The report makes clear that even a half-degree increase in warming makes a huge difference - damaging our economy and our future", Keith Gaby, senior communications director at the Environmental Defense Fund, told IFLScience, adding: "We think it is possible to limit warming if we act boldly and quickly".

US President Donald Trump said he does not want to spend trillions of dollars responding to impacts of climate change, which he said was not a hoax but could "change back again".

"She really believes in global warming and that's fine, and man's role in climate change and that's okay", Kilmeade said. I will say this.

When Stahl asked about the findings of scientists who are warning about climate change, he replied, "You'd have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda, Lesley".

"It was given to me and I want to look who drew it, you know - which groups drew it, because I can give you reports that are fabulous and I can give you reports that aren't so good", he said.

"This is the most deceptive, vicious world".

Last night, actor Alec Baldwin urged voters to "overthrow" the USA government led by Mr Trump at the ballot box. "We change governments here at home in an orderly and formal way", he said.

However, he announced the United States would withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, which commits another 187 other countries to keeping rising global temperatures "well below" 2C above pre-industrial levels and "endeavour to limit" them even more, to 1.5C.

Baldwin said on issue after issue that Republicans are destroyers, not builders.
