Hundreds of Scientists BEG Trump to END U.N. Climate Change Agreement
Hundreds of Scientists Call Paris Agreement A Sham
Over 300 scientists have requested that President Trump withdraw from the Paris Agreement which is a radical climate change agenda that was put into effect under the Obama Administration according to a report from the Washington Times.
Leading the charge from the scientific community against the Paris Agreement is MIT professor emeritus Richard Lindzen who has delivered sharp criticisms about the agreement. Mr. Lindzen challenges the climate change narrative by saying that carbon dioxide is “plant food, not poison.”
From The Washington Times:
“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.
Signers of the attached petition include the U.S. and international atmospheric scientists, meteorologists, physicists, professors and others taking issue with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change [UNFCCC], which was formed in 1992 to combat “dangerous” climate change.
The 2016 Paris climate accord, which sets nonbinding emissions goals for nations, was drawn up under the auspices of the UNFCCC.
“Observations since the UNFCCC was written 25 years ago show that warming from increased atmospheric CO2 will be benign — much less than initial model predictions,” says the petition.
While campaigning for President, Donald Trump said that he would “cancel” the Paris Agreement that was set in motion under the Obama Administration.
