The following words were spoken to journalists ahead of her speech at the American University in Washington.

“I find it immensely depressing because many of us – not just my institute – have been working really hard to create the Paris agreement and global effort to cut carbon emissions,” Thinking that the USA isn’t going to play its part, such a major industrial country, is really very, very sad and it just means we’re going to have to work harder.”

What Exactly Does Jane Know About the Topic?

Jane Goodall is a world-wide known British primatologist who lives and works in nature.  She has done this throughout her whole life.  She gives her right to condemn Trump, ”

“Because I’m traveling all over the world 300 days a year, I have seen the result of climate change and we know, science has shown, that global temperatures are warming and these so-called greenhouse gases are blanketing the globe.”

Jane went on to mention that ice caps are melting, sea levels are rising and the oceans have lost their ability to absorb carbon dioxide.

It Has Happened – Not Just is Happening!

Jane stated, “There’s no way we can say climate change isn’t happening: it’s happened. The argument that people give is, ‘Well, we can’t prove that human activities are the main cause of this,’ and I just heard the other day that one of the president’s people [Scott Pruitt of the Environmental Protection Agency] said, ‘Well, we don’t think carbon monoxide is the main greenhouse gas.’”

Jane continues,

“So being not a scientist in that field, I tend to listen to scientists who do work in that field, like Nicholas Stern, and I would not dream of refuting the science that shows climate change is happening. It’s happening everywhere. It’s already having devastating effects in many parts of the word and the droughts are getting worse, flooding’s getting worse, storms, hurricanes are getting more frequent and more violent. And the main thing is unpredictability: everywhere I go, people say, ‘Well, it’s not normally like that at this
time of year.’”
Trump Cuts Jane Goodall’s Institute
Jane added that while people point to China as a polluter but that country and the United Arab Emirates have invested in green energy.   Jane, the feisty and educated 82- year woman is worried that Trump plans to slash funding to USAid, which could hurt the Jane Goodall Institute, a wildlife and environment conservation organization she founded in 1977. Working in six African countries, its projects include community-based conservation, girls’ education, family planning and forest protection and restoration.
