In has been claimed that President Trump will remove climate change from the “List of National Security Threats.” He is set to reverse Obama’s policy so he can focus on other threats.
Per Daily Mail:
The Federalist, which claims to have had access to a draft version of the document, says it will prioritize other threats instead.
Any mention of climate policies is angled not towards global warming but instead is tied to economic growth and energy security.
It is in line with Trump’s decision earlier this year to remove the United States from The Paris Agreement and follows his dubious stance on global warming.
The draft Strategy reads: ‘Climate policies will continue to shape the global energy system.
‘U.S. leadership is indispensable to countering an anti-growth, energy agenda that is detrimental to U.S. economic and energy security interests.
‘Given future global energy demand, much of the developing world will require fossil fuels, as well as other forms of energy, to power their economies and lift their people out of poverty.’
The Federalist reports that it is given considerably less prominence than in previous versions.
Former President Obama repeatedly referred to global warming as one of the biggest threats the world is facing. This was despite no scientific evidence to support this.
