Energy Secretary Rick Perry admitted Wednesday on CNBC that human activity does play a role in climate change, apparently contradicting the Trump administration's position on the subject.

"I'm on the record as saying the climate is changing," Perry said. "Are we part of the reason? Yeah . . . I'll let people debate about who’s the bigger problem here."

Perry, however, did not go into details about whether man-made greenhouse gases are the main problem, instead emphasizing, no matter what the facts, it is still worth developing zero-emissions technology and the Trump administration has significant great steps in providing cleaner energy solutions.

"It makes sense for us to have policies that reduce emissions, that reduce the pollutants that are in the air, to reduce the particles that cause massive health problems around the world," he said. "Common sense tells you, bring the cleaner burning fuels, bring things that bring the emissions down."

Perry claimed, without details or citing evidence, the U.S. is doing more to reduce emissions than countries in the Paris climate deal who were upset when the U.S. announced its withdrawal from the agreement.

Although President Donald Trump has dismantled scores of environmental rules, Perry insisted "this administration is making more progress than any other administration in history in reducing emissions. Face it, that's the facts. It may not meet your narrative, but that's the facts."
