Sputnik then stated how a letter requesting Prime Minister Theresa May to speak to President Trump regarding the impact of climate change had been signed by about 250 academics. InderjeetParmar was then asked whether he believed Theresa May wanted this and whether President Donald Trump was capable of taking this topic of discussion seriously, provided that it was coming from an outgoing Prime Minister. Parmer replied how Trump could not care less about climatic change and how we were willing to challenge the very concept of it. Trump has chosen and assigned, as heads of various scientific and environmental organizations, individuals that reject the concept of climatic change.
It should also be taken into account that the chief supporters and donors of his campaigns are part of the fossil fuel industry, for example, the Koch brothers.
