US Ambassador to UN says Trump ‘does believe in climate change’

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley says that US President Trump “believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of the equation”. This follows his widely condemned announcement on 1st June 2017 that the US would withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate change agreement.  The Paris accord united nearly 200 countries in one agreement to tackle climate change. A key element was agreeing to keep global temperatures “well below” the level of 2.0degC above pre-industrial times and “pursue efforts to limit them even further” to 1.5decC.
