Confirming the worst fear, US President Donald Trump on June 1, surprised the world when he announced that the United States would withdraw from the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement. The agreement seeks to safeguard the world from the increasingly disastrous impacts of climate change. But long before Trump even declared candidature for the White House, he has been issuing periodic statements affirming his belief that man-made global warming is a myth. Since the year 2011, Trump has been tweeting his denialisms regarding the climate quite regularly, and it culminated in his exiting the Paris climate agreement on Thursday.

More dangerously, in most of his tweets, Trump has been confused between climate and weather (while relating to the temperature at a place during winter season). He even condemned then President Obama for making climate change a priority, which Trump interpreted as foolish. While most of his tweets predate Trump’s campaign, a few of them were issued during the 2016 Republican primary, where this kind of climate change denial was common among candidates.

Trump, the leader of the world’s second biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, said in one of the most nervously-anticipated announcements ever, that he will begin negotiations to ‘re-enter’ the Paris accord or ‘an entirely new transaction’, on ‘terms that are fair to the US, its businesses, its people, its taxpayers’. Clearly, neither his tweets nor his reasons for quitting the agreement give us a sense that he is worried about global warming at all:

Here’s a look at some of his tweets (out of hundreds) where he has denied climate change and global warming:


Trump had publicly shown his displeasure with the Paris Agreement, more recently at the G7 Summit when Trump refused to support global effort to combat climate change.
