“I don’t believe it,” Trump said of the 1,600-page report by some 300 researchers from 13 federal agencies issued by the White House last week.
Cooper detailed Trump’s long history of denial on climate change, including a tweet last week confusing weather with climate:
“The president of the United States seems to be honestly believing that global warming means it never gets cold anywhere,” Cooper said. “NASA has a good explanation of the difference between weather and climate on its website ― its website for children.”
“We’re just suggesting, Mr. President, if you don’t want to believe science or the 1,600-page report your team tried to slip past the American public on Friday, maybe just start with climatekids.nasa.gov. It’s a pretty easy read. It’s fun. There are pictures. But we’re not going to hold our breath because unlike the climate, some things never actually change.”
