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

Signers of the petition include U.S. and international atmospheric scientists, meteorologists, physicists, professors and others taking issue with the UN’s attempts to combat “dangerous” climate change.

23 Feb 2017 – 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 letter to the president, MIT professor emeritus Richard Lindzen called on the U.S. and other nations to “change course on an outdated international agreement that targets minor greenhouse gases,” starting with carbon dioxide.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.

Challenging the catastrophic climate change narrative, Mr. Lindzen describes carbon dioxide as “plant food, not poison.”

Restricting access to fossil fuels “condemns over 4 billion people in still underdeveloped countries to continued poverty.” says Lindzen in his letter.

    • The battle took place during Rajab and Sha’ban of the 9/630 in the region of Tabuk against an Eastern Roman Empire force in 9/630.
      The time scale is during the second solar cycle of the LALIA Grand Solar Minimum and possibly following two of the documented three very large volcanic eruptions during this GSM period.
      The LALIA GSM has similar characteristics to the Oort GSM which followed it some 360 year later/
      It is very likely that the same Meridional Jet Stream air patterns were in play as now, with deep cold circulating a blocking Scandinavian High injecting very cold wet air into the Middle East from Polar Regions coupled with the significant SO2 cooling from the volcanism.

  2. This is rather more real scientists asking for action, rarther than the 67 Ologists agreeing with a biased survey which formed the famous 97% propagander climate consencus.

    There has never been a peer reviewed scientific paper regarding CO2 as the root cause of AGW. There have been numerous papers based on enhanced/modified NOAA data stemming from someonce thumb on the ball of the themometer.

  3. It should only take one person with proof, using numbers of individuals that believe something is misleading, something is true, or it is not, belief is irrelevant.

  4. Successful industrial nations got where they are thanks to maximizing the use of coal and “fossil” fuels.
    There is no fair and moral argument that can be made in defense of denying the right of developing nations to do the same.
    I highly recommend a documentary called The Carbon Rush. It details how Big Green and their “carbon offsets” are causing irreparable death and destruction all around the globe. Here is an enlightening trailer for the film: It is almost like a horror movie. Peace to all from Canada

  5. This is important good news. Having this petition will add weight to his actions in withdrawing.

    He can show this petition signed by 300 high-level scientists and then explain how the 97% narrative was fake.

    These scientists’ opinions are a lot more meaningful than the diatribes of movie actors and actresses.

  6. I am still waiting for the first “AGW Nay Sayer” to be taken to Court. Many Many Threats, but no actions. I guess those that push AGW are not confident enough to think they can win in Court to follow through with their threat.

    • Being ignorant and/or wrong about science isn’t something the legal system was designed to deal with.
      People who deny the reality of climate science or mostly not scientists. The tiny fraction of scientists who do deny the science are basically kooks.
