Hundreds of scientists urge Trump to withdraw from U.N. climate-change agency


More than 300 scientists have urged President Trump to withdraw from the U.N.’s climate change agency, warning that its push to curtail carbon dioxide threatens to exacerbate poverty without improving the environment.

In a Thursday letter to the president, MIT professor emeritus Richard Lindzen called on the United States and other nations to “change course on an outdated international agreement that targets minor greenhouse gases,” starting with carbon dioxide.

“Since 2009, the US and other governments have undertaken actions with respect to global climate that are not scientifically justified and that already have, and will continue to cause serious social and economic harm — with no environmental benefits,” said Mr. Lindzen, a prominent atmospheric physicist.

  1. If the United Nations is behind an agreement, you can be sure it’s a scheme to redistribute the wealth of the West.

  2. Think of all of the libs peeing down their leg with tears running down their cheeks as they shout about “settled science”…..and Polar Bears and shi*….

  3. Trump knows, we all know, cheap energy is the only way to advance modern civilization and keep businesses moving.

    2/8/17 Washed up RINOs push for carbon tax:
    Trump tweets – no way, no carbon tax

    Plus the Senate passed a bill taking climate nonsense away from NASA – that has yet to be signed into law but it will make NASA great again!

  4. I’m all for sending the UN packing off to Brussels, let them deal with the deranged Islamic nations, we have had enough.

  5. The US has strict environmental standards.
    Far stricter than China, India, and Africa.
    By that logic, the more stuff built in America, the better for the environment.
    My sister is a Coasty. When deployed off Haiti, the seawater was toxic for about a mile off shore. So bad that if you fell in, you get the biohazard scrub, just like you had fell into a vat of Black Plague.
    So yeah, buy American, save the planet

  6. Chicken little cried once– “The sky is falling, the sky is falling” but what happened? nothing- the sun comes up-the season’s will keep changing- and life will go on.
