NEW YORK (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump says there’s “some connectivity” between humans and climate change.

He tells The New York Times on Tuesday that “clean air is vitally important” and he’s keeping an open mind about whether to pull the United States out of a multinational agreement on climate change.

He appeared to break dramatically with his own previous remarks that climate change was a hoax.

The Times reported that he said Tuesday, “I think there is some connectivity. Some, something. It depends on how much.”
