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

The Washington Times has a story on the letter which Dr. Richard Lindzen sent to the Trump White House.

Letter to Trump is here.

The petition is signed by 300 scientists.  This is a real number unlike the phony “97% of scientists agree” which you hear parroted so often.

Here is the petition:

We urge the United States government, and others, to withdraw from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). We support reasonable and cost-effective environmental protection. But carbon dioxide, the target of the UNFCCC is not a pollutant but a major benefit to agriculture and other life on Earth. 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.
