[100 word news] – ‘Trump could push the Earth over the brink’, says Stephen Hawking

Professor Stephen Hawking has criticised President Trump’s attitude to climate change, saying:

‘We are close to the tipping point where global warming becomes irreversible. Trump’s actions could push the Earth over the brink, to become like Venus, with a temperature of two hundred and fifty degrees, and raining sulphuric acid’.

‘Climate change is one of the great dangers we face, and it’s one we can prevent if we act now. By denying the evidence for climate change, and pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement, Donald Trump will cause avoidable environmental damage to our beautiful planet, endangering the natural world, for us and our children’.
