UN scientist claims Trump ‘poses the single greatest threat’ to Earth’s climate
A former UN lead author of the United Nations climate reports, Dr. Michael Mann, has ramped up the stakes of the new “dire” UN climate change report by claiming the “latest [UN] report underscores the danger that [President] Donald Trump poses to the planet.”
The UN report “makes clear we need to reduce emissions dramatically, vastly exceeding our Paris targets. Yet Trump probably poses the single greatest threat to meeting those targets,” Mann, a Penn State professor, told ThinkProgress on October 8.
But, even before the 2016 presidential election, Mann warned that Trump was a “threat to the planet,” whose future “could quite literally lie in the balance.” Mann has been at the center of controversy over his Hockey Stick temperature graph and his involvement in the Climategate scandal.
The new UN climate report was greeted by climate skeptics as a rehash of discredited climate claims. See: ‘Same old, same old’ – Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry on New UN IPCC report – ‘The IPCC still has not made a strong case for this massive investment to prevent 1.5C warming’

UN Climate Activists Triggered by Trump
On November 16, 2016, at the UN climate summit in Marrakesh, Morocco, I found out firsthand just how much the climate crowd fears President Trump and his policies. When I unfurled a lifesized image of Trump, all hell broke loose. UN climate
delegates reacted like vampires to a cross. The Associated Press reported on my day: “An American climate change skeptic has shredded a copy of the Paris agreement on global warming at the U.N. climate conference. Marc Morano, who
runs a climate skeptic website, was led away by security guards after the stunt outside the media center in Marrakech. Morano put the document in a paper shredder and said that’s what will happen to the Paris deal once Trump takes office.
Wearing a red Trump hat, he said ‘the delegates here seem to be in deep denial about President-elect Trump’s policies.’ As security guards led him away, he said ‘we will not be silenced.’”
Armed UN “climate cops” swarmed me and removed me from the UN conference. My CFACT colleague Craig Rucker and I were literally pushed out into the desolate desert outside the perimeter of the Marrakesh conference center. Moments
later, armed UN security commandeered my briefcase and confiscated my papers inside, which were never to be returned.
Despite the purely symbolic climate impact, on the day the Trump administration announced it was going to repeal the EPA regulations, filmmaker Michael Moore warned, “Historians in the near future will mark today, March 28, 2017, as the day the extinction of human life on earth began, thanks to Donald Trump.”
