His response came after the report, quietly slipped out on Friday, warned that natural disasters were worsening in the USA because of climate change.

Scientists have reacted angrily to President Donald Trump's assertion that he is not among the "believers" in the seriousness of climate change.

"As to whether or not it's man-made and whether or not the effects that you're talking about are there, I don't see it", he added, doubling down on his initial reaction to the report on Monday when he said: "I don't believe it".

Their findings trump has sounded when I read the possible effects associated with changing climatic conditions. A water manager may use past or current streamflow records to design a dam, a city could issue permits for coastal development based on current flood maps and an electric utility or a farmer may invest in equipment suited to the current climate, all with the expectation that their investments and management practices will meet future needs. "It flows and we say, 'Where does this come from?' And it takes many people, to start off with".

Donald Trump insisted American air and water was "right now at a record clean". "You're going to have to have China and Japan and all of Asia and all of these other countries, you know".

While the Trump administration has received heavy criticism or withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, the USA previous year was able to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions while the rest of the world saw a rise in global emissions.

"'If you go back and look at articles, they talk about global freezing". "Climate change is happening here and everywhere else in the world".

Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist at Texas Tech University, told the newspaper: "Facts aren't something we need to believe to make them true, we treat them as optional at our peril".

Since becoming president in 2016, he has pulled the United States out of the worldwide Paris Agreement on attempting to bring down global temperatures, and torn up a raft of environmental protection laws, saying the USA economy needs the boost.

"Researchers who have reviewed this period have found that while such ideas were indeed afoot at the time, there was "no scientific consensus in the 1970s" about a global cooling trend or risk, as there is today about human-caused climate change".
