Donald Trump to scale back importance of climate change in government decisions, says White House official

Donald Trump is planning to order a dramatic reduction in the role climate change plays in policy decisions, a White House official has said.

The US President, who has called global warming a hoax created by China, is reportedly preparing to release a wide-ranging executive order overturning measures taken by Barack Obama to combat climate change.
