US election: Clinton vs Trump on climate change

Do Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have a plan to combat climate change?

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are worlds apart when it comes to climate change.

Clinton has listed “climate change” and “protecting animals and wildlife” as two key issues on her campaign website, while Trump said “there is still much that needs to be investigated in the field of climate change”.

While Clinton aims to make the US the world’s clean energy superpower of the 21st century, Trump has said he wants “energy independence” on oil and gas, adding he’ll even walk away from the landmark Paris Climate deal within his first 100 days in office.
