Wash­ing­ton: Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump has said he would “can­cel” the Paris cli­mate deal in his first ma­jor speech on en­ergy pol­icy. More than 195 coun­tries pledged to re­duce car­bon emis­sions in a land­mark agree­ment last year. The bil­lion­aire busi­ness­man has said be­fore there is no ev­i­dence that hu­mans are re­spon­si­ble for cli­mate change.

He called for more drilling, fewer reg­u­la­tions and the ap­proval of the Key­stone XL oil pipe­line from Canada. “Any reg­u­la­tion that’s out­dated, un­nec­es­sary, bad for work­ers or con­trary to the na­tional in­ter­est will be scrapped and scrapped com­pletely,” Mr Trump said.

“We’re go­ing to do all this while tak­ing proper re­gard for ra­tio­nal en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns.” BBC
