On Sunday, U.S. president Donald Trump admitted climate change is real. He stated, "climate will change back again," in the context of a report by the global authority on the matter, which labeled the consequences as, "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society," which demonstrates an apparent shift in the White House's official stance on the issue.
Yet this seems to contradict the Trump administration's previous stance. In November 2012, Trump declared climate change was a phenomenon intentionally fabricated by Chinese competitors with the aim to make the U.S. manufacturers less competitive --an affirmation which he then labeled a "joke"--. Now, along with his recent statement, the leader is saying he won´t allow the U.S. to be at a disadvantage at the time of responding to the phenomenon.
The only thing that is currently uncertain for president Trump is whether or not climate change is man made or if there are other factors at play.
