Although he has moved to protect his golf course from rising sea levels, President-elect Donald Trump has sung a denialist tune about global warming. Opting out of domestic and international climate change mitigation efforts look to be next.

.

Upon taking office, Trump is expected to declare the US will exit the Paris climate accord. The non-binding international pledge was agreed to in December and commits nations to ensuring the Earth’s warming remains under 2 degree Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), a level climate scientists believe is necessary to ward off the worst impact of catastrophic climate change. The pact includes efforts to further reduce warming and carbon emissions beyond the 2 degree Celsius mark. The agreement only went into effect last week.

.

Trump has repeatedly called global warming a “hoax” perpetuated by China. His “America First Energy Plan” includes promises to rescind the “job-destroying”Climate Action Plan, or Clean Power Plan, pledges to “save the coal industry,” and an exit from the Paris Climate Agreement, among a host of other plans to nix environmental regulations that restrict drilling or are “contrary to the national interest.” Trump’s plan does not mention that the Obama administration has overseen a historic boom in domestic oil production thanks in no small part to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, technologies.

.

Trump has also promised to stock his administration with a roster of climate change deniers and skeptics connected to fossil fuels who have long expressed contempt for clean energy or carbon reduction plans. Despite his rhetoric, Trump’s business interests have at least acknowledged that rising seas connected to global warming threaten his golf course in Scotland.

.

“A Trump presidency might be game over for the climate,” top climate researcher Michael Mann said, according to the Guardian. It might make it impossible to stabilize planetary warming below dangerous levels.”

.

If the US, which emits the second-most greenhouse gases worldwide, exits the already-tenuous Paris agreement, expect other nations, especially top polluter China, to follow America’s lead, experts say.

Trump will work in tandem with a Republican-led Congress that has long fumed over any climate change mitigation actions directed by the Obama administration, even statements made by the Pentagon that global warming is a top threat to stability around the world.

.

In January 2015, upon the beginning of the current, 114th US Congress, 39 GOP senators, or 72 percent of the Republican majority, were considered climate change deniers, according to Mother Jones. Meanwhile, more than half of the Republican majority in the US House deny that humans have caused global climate change, ThinkProgress reported. In March, Grist.org reported that the 182 climate change deniers in Congress have received more than $73 million from oil, gas, and coal companies during their political careers.
