Trump makes no attempt to conceal his scepticism on climate change. Let us not forget that climate sceptics have all but disappeared in Europe. They remain active in the United States, where lobbies have generously funded this mind-set, particularly during the 2000 decade.
The decisions taken by the Trump administration should not have a major impact on the European Union’s climate policy before 2020. It is worth noting that the upcoming Brexit will have a stronger effect on the main pillars of European climate policy.
