Disappointing as it may be for this 11-year old, Mr. Trump cannot stop climate changes.The climate is always changing and adjusting. The best any President can do is to direct government resources to those activities that do the most good in helping the country to understand, adjust and adapt to changes in climate (as well as sea level rise).
” CBS News celebrated an eleven-year-old who is suing President Trump for his climate change skepticism. The kid, Avery McRae, said, “Trump is not doing anything to help stop climate change. He’s a climate change denier, and we’re going to prove that to — to the world.” “ click here

“During the first decade of the twenty-first century, the Earth’s surface warmed more slowly than climate models simulated1. This surface-warming hiatus is attributed by some studies to model errors in external forcing2, 3, 4, while others point to heat rearrangements in the ocean5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 caused by internal variability, the timing of which cannot be predicted by the models1. However, observational analyses disagree about which ocean region is responsible11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16. Here we show that the hiatus could also have been caused by internal variability in the top-of-atmosphere energy imbalance. Energy budgeting for the ocean surface layer over a 100-member historical ensemble reveals that hiatuses are caused by energy-flux deviations as small as 0.08 W m−2, which can originate at the top of the atmosphere, in the ocean, or both. Budgeting with existing observations cannot constrain the origin of the recent hiatus, because the uncertainty in observations dwarfs the small flux deviations that could cause a hiatus. The sensitivity of these flux deviations to the observational dataset and to energy budget choices helps explain why previous studies conflict, and suggests that the origin of the recent hiatus may never be identified.” click here
Such predictions are speculation, akin to fortune telling.

“The lawsuit was initiated by a complaint, filed in September 2016, accusing the Climate Action Network (CAN), a political entity registered in Germany and headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon, and 39 other corporations and foundations, of violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”, 18 U.S.C. § 1961-1968). The defendants allegedly participated in the Climate Alarmism Enterprise through a pattern of racketeering activity including numerous acts of retaliation against witnesses, tampering with witnesses, bribery, and embezzlement from pension plans.” click here
