Trump says climate change deserves a second look

trumpRepublican nominee Donald Trump might be taking a second look at climate change as the election draws closer, he said Tuesday.

In response to a questionnaire sent by scientific organizations, Trump touted some skepticism on the issue of global warming. But he also said that the issue of climate change deserves further investigation, which was a surprise.

“There is still much that needs to be investigated in the field of ‘climate change,'” he said in response to the questionnaire. He suggested that the nation focus on efforts to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, rather than combating climate change.

In the past, he has called climate change a “hoax” created by the Chinese, but he also has said he supports local bans on fracking.

“Perhaps we should be focused on developing energy sources and power production that alleviates the need for dependence on fossil fuels,” said Trump in answering the questionnaire. “We must decide on how best to proceed so that we can make lives better, safer and more prosperous.”

    Hedge fund $$Billionaires got it by preying on weakness , insider knowledge and gamblers luck . The Hillary faint ,stumble , or what ever it was just confirmed speculation but the money has been placed . Donald knows it and seems to be offering something to the moderate greens as the other horse in the race blew a shoe on the last lap .
    Credit due to Hillary for even venturing out when clearly she was not well . The pressure on both of them never lets off but the whole process is just it’s own industry which does not serve democracy and when candidates burn themselves out before they even get to office .
