Following an invitation by Fiji Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama to President-Elect Donald Trump to come to the island nation and see that climate change is real, Redditor AnOnlineHandle compiled a list of tweets where Trump denies climate change, dating back to 2012.

According to the Indian Express, while speaking at the climate change conference in Marrakesh, Prime Minister Bainimarama “appealed to the new President to help the people in the small island countries which were the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.”

Bainimarama said:

I appeal to the President -elect Donald Trump to show leadership on this issue, by abandoning his current position that man-made climate change is a hoax. On the contrary, the global scientific consensus is that it (climate change) is very real and we must act decisively to avert catastrophe. As the second biggest carbon emitter on earth, the US must take responsibility for contributing to our collective response to this crisis and show leadership at this critical stage. We in the Pacific, in common with the whole world, look to America for their leadership and their systems and assistance on climate change, just as we looked to America during the dark days of World War II. And I say to the American people that you came to save us then and it is time for you to help us save now. I renew my offer to President-elect Trump to come to Fiji to see the effects of climate change himself, and to meet the Pacific island leaders face to face in Fiji and discuss the crisis we are facing along with low-lying areas all over the world, including parts of America.

On his campaign trial, President-Elect Trump repeatedly called climate change “a Chinese hoax.” According to the New York Times, Trump has “suggested he would withdraw the United States from the Paris accord, widely regarded as the most important United Nations achievement in years. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and President Obama invested a great deal of political energy in its success.”

Trump is now at odds with a majority of the world in regards to human-caused climate change. His appointment of Myron Ebell, a climate change denier, as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, further raised eyebrows in early November.

  1. Heck, some adults remember back in the 70s and 80s when liberal/progressive nutbats were ranting and railing about “global cooling and the new ice age”. Then when data didn’t agree with that, it was changed to “global warming”. Data had to be fiddled with and changed as it didn’t support that either.
    Now it’s weather I guess. Or climate change? Ya mean there was an ice age once on earth? And rain forests in the desert? And….

    liberal/progressives are such clowns
