The quote is one of those classic lines that people have written themselves into their daily lives, whether it be in the form of a tweet, or in the shape of a quote in an article.
It’s the “if-then” mantra that has come to encapsulate a lot about Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president.
It’s also one of the more controversial lines in the Republican presidential field, as many Republicans have come to see it as a way of distancing themselves from the reality TV star.
In recent days, however, the quote has been under renewed scrutiny as it has been the subject of a number of media stories, including one that revealed the real-estate mogul’s own personal beliefs about climate science.
The Cosmo piece was originally published in December, when the businessman was a candidate for the Republican nomination for president, and the article is one in a series by Cosmo, CosmoMagazine.org, Cosmopolitan, and Cosmo about what he believes about the climate and global warming.
In the article, Cosmonews.com asked Trump if he would accept the consensus on climate change.
The billionaire said he has “a lot of confidence” in climate scientists, but that the consensus isn’t backed by science.
He also stated, “I’m not the one who invented the term climate change.”
The Cosmopolitan piece is notable because it focuses on the real estate mogul’s personal views on climate science, rather than the underlying scientific consensus.
In the article published in late December, Cosmoms.com wrote, “Trump told Cosmopolitan magazine in a recent interview that he believes the earth is warming because CO2 is trapping heat in the atmosphere.”
Trump’s statements are not a surprise.
The businessman has made clear that his position on climate is “very clear” and that he wants to “do what’s right for the country,” according to a March interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.
But his recent comments about climate are troubling because of what he is saying about scientists.
For example, in his March interview, Trump said, “If the scientists were to say that it’s a really, really hot, humid summer and it’s really hot and humid and it has a really large amount of precipitation, you know, that’s what they’re saying, then I’m going to believe them.”
When asked by Cosmopolitan if he is aware of the scientific consensus that climate change is happening, Trump responded, “Absolutely.”
“I believe the science is there,” Trump said.
“I know the scientists, they’ve been doing it for a long time.”
In his October 2016 presidential debate with Hillary Clinton, Trump also said, “”I think the climate’s changing, and it really is a very complicated subject.
You know, the scientists are telling us, you’re looking at these extreme weather events, we’ve got some hurricanes that we’re seeing, we’re having some floods, you name it.
“When pressed by Cosmonmagazine on whether he agrees with the scientific community, Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to Cosmo’s question about climate.
When Cosmo asked Trump about climate changes in the wake of his comments, the candidate said, “(Science) is very complicated, and there’s a lot you can’t do with it, but I don’t think it’s going to make a difference.
I mean, the science’s there.
It really is.
“Trump did not offer further clarification, but he did say that, “The science is not as clear as it was 20 years ago.
“According to the American Meteorological Society, the Earth has warmed by 0.5 degrees Fahrenheit since the late 1800s.
According to data from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the average annual temperature on the Earth’s surface has risen by 0 to 0.8 degrees Fahrenheit over that time period.
The average annual rainfall on Earth has increased by roughly 1.4 inches since the mid-1800s, according to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.”
There are a lot more things that can go wrong in the climate system than the warming, and you can do things to mitigate some of those,” Michael Mann, a climate scientist at Pennsylvania State University, told Cosmo.
Mann said the “hundreds of studies that are published every year” about climate have shown that human activity is the main driver of climate change, and that it will continue to “lead to more extreme weather, more heat waves, more droughts, more floods, more wildfires,
