Abstract

The election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States reminded us that climate deniers are anything but endangered species. In this short paper, we discuss President Trump's position on climate change in the wider context of climate controversies and denial. In particular, we put it into perspective with other notorious contrarian leaders and their influence on national and inter- national climate politics. Finally, we provide a brief analysis of President Trump discourses on climate change and discuss them in light of reflections about post- truth politics.
