U.S. Administration acknowledges climate change

Speaking about the Paris Accord on CBS, Rex Tillotson acknowledges climate change.
(CBS Face The Nation (FTN), Sunday 17 Sept. 2017)

FTN - What is the Administration's position on climate change?

Tillotson: The position is being led and developed by Gary Cohn at the National Economic Council. I think - if you remember - the President also said we are willing to work with the Paris Climate accord, if we can construct a set of terms that we believe is fair and balanced for the American people, and recognizes our economy, our economic interest, relative to others, in particular the second largest economy in the world, China. If you look at those targets for the Paris Climate accord, they were really out of balance with the 2 largest economies. So I think the plan is for Director Cohn to consider other ways in which we can work with partners in the Paris Climate Accord. We want to be productive, we want to be helpful. The US actually has a tremendous track record on reducing our own greenhouse gas emissions.

FTN - So there's a chance that if things get worked out, both from the voluntary side from the US, the voluntary restrictions - but then also China, there's a chance that the US could stay in the accord, is that right?

Tillotson: Under the right conditions the President has said he is open to finding those conditions where we can remain engaged with others, on what we all agree is still a challenging issue.
