Pelosi: Almost Every Schoolchild in America Knows More About Climate Change Than Trump

Friday at her weekly press briefing, Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), said President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement showed “almost every schoolchild in America” knew more about climate challenge than President Donald Trump.

Pelosi said, “He lives in a fact-free zone. His speech was based on White House counsel notes that were incorrect. It was false. He does not know anything about the agreement he is walking away from. He cited an MIT  study that the agreement would slow global warming by a tiny tiny amount. MIT officials rejected that statement today and they have said the reverse. Without the agreement, the acceleration of global warming would go forward. They said that Trump misunderstood —that’s a generous word — their study.”

She added, “How do you explain this to your grandchildren President Trump? All the money in the world cannot change the fact that walking away from this agreement is a disservice to your children, your grandchildren and future generations of Americans.”
