Donald Trump took part in a roundtable in Sacramento to discuss the wildfires that have taken over the western part of the country. During the discussion, Trump asserted that the planet will start getting cooler and that he should be trusted over scientists when it comes to climate change.
During the roundtable, Wade Crowfoot of the California Natural Resources Agency told Trump that temperatures in the state had recently broken records.
“We’re seeing this warming trend make our summers warmer, but also our winters warmer as well,” Crowfoot explained. “We want to work with you to really recognize the changing climate and what it means to our forests and actually work together with that science. That science is going to be key. Because if we ignore that science and sort of put our head in the sand and say we think it’s all about vegetation management, we’re not going to succeed in protecting Californians.”
“It will start getting cooler,” Trump fired back. “You just watch.”
“I wish science agreed with you,” Crowfoot replied.
“Oh, well, I don’t think science knows,” Trump remarked.
