Of course he will support all those who deny Climate Change. While the passage to the north of Russia become more open every year, Russia is building artificial islands to claim more and more control of this route, for which nations wanting to use this route will have to pay a toll. Were Climate Change to be halted and reversed (not likely in today's political climate in the US), Russia would lose billions from this. Having islands throught the affected region will also affect control of air space. China is doing the same thing between its mainland and Japan, a move that, along with Russia’s moves, will affect the geopoliotics of a large area.
