In an interview on 60 Minutes last night, President Donald Trump backpedaled on his stance that climate change is a hoax, but he didn't go so far as to acknowledge the reality of climate change and its potentially disastrous effects on the planet.
In a "60 Minutes" interview with US-based broadcaster CBS aired on Sunday, Trump said any alterations to the earth's climate would "change back again". "I don't think it's a hoax, I think there's probably a difference", Trump told Lesley Stahl.
Asked whether he still thinks climate change is a hoax, Trump said, "I think something's happening".
"So I always used to say the toughest people are Manhattan real estate guys and blah, blah", he said.
"I don't want to give trillions and trillions of dollars", Trump said. I don't want to lose millions and millions of jobs.More news: France floods: At least five dead as flash floods strike Aude

Last week's report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - the leading worldwide body evaluating climate change - warned the world was heading towards a temperature rise of 3 degrees Celsius.
Keeping to the target of 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming against pre-industrial levels agreed to in the internationally-backed Paris climate change agreement of 2015 will mean "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society", it added. "You know, we're talkin' about over a millions of years".
But Trump, citing no evidence, told Stahl that she would have to "show me the scientists" who have found human activity is a primary driver of global warming trends over the past century "because they have a very political agenda". "There is no "safe" level of warming, and there's no time to indulge fossil fuel stooges like Donald Trump in their science fiction fantasies", he added.More news: Trump Says He Will Call Saudi King About Khashoggi, Calls Case "Terrible"
He replied: "You'd have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda".

The president also expressed doubt over scientists' findings linking the changing climate to more powerful hurricanes.More news: Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 Review - 8 Ups & 4 Downs
