Few challenges facing America and the world are more urgent than combating climate change.The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear.
We, the undersigned scientists, maintain that the case for alarm regarding climate change is grossly overstated. Surface temperature changes over the past century have been episodic and modest and there has been no net global warming for over a decade now.1,2 After controlling for population growth and property values, there has been
no increase in damages from severe weather-related events.3 The computer models forecasting rapid temperature change abjectly fail to explain recent climate behavior.4 Mr. President, your characterization of the scientific facts regarding climate change and the degree of certainty informing the scientific debate is simply incorrect.

If the environmentalists really cared, they would be demanding the UN to control China, Russia, and other countries which have no respect what-so-ever for the environment, and are releasing toxic chemicals into rivers, lakes, and oceans. Yet of course, all they do is yell and try to blame it all on the west, and keep asking for more donations so they can continue yelling and blaming the west meanwhile they do barely anything constructive.
