Global challenges through the eyes of candidates for president

The environment is facing many problems which have a huge impact on our world. One of the main problems is carbon dioxide. Al Gore focuses a lot on this topic and our starting point is to prevent this global challenge from getting any worse. Over the past years, CO2 emission has only been growing. According to Al Gores graphs the US. has the highest number of CO2 emissions.


Hillary Clinton has always been very preoccupied of the environment and supported many climate- focused debates. Also, according to an article in USA today by  Gregg Zoroya and Doyle Rice, “Clinton cares deeply about protecting public health and the environment”. This is proven when she mentioned during her acceptance speech that she is proud of the US for signing the Paris climate accord.


However, Trump on the other hand disagrees with Clintons opinion about the Paris climate deal and rejects the mainstream climate science. He has called climate change a “con job” and a “hoax” and suggested it is a Chinese plot “to make US manufacturing non-competitive.”
