Trump to NYT: 'open mind' on quitting climate accords

New York (AFP) –


US President-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday he has an open-mind about pulling out of world climate accords and admitted global warming may be in some way linked to human activity.

"I think there is some connectivity. Some, something. It depends on how much," he told a panel of New York Times journalists.

Asked whether he would make good on his threat to pull the United States out of UN climate accords, he said: "I'm looking at it very closely. I have an open mind to it."
