Dear Mr.President

Dear Mr. President [Obama]: “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. After controlling for population growth and property values, there has been no increase in damages from severe weather-related events. The computer models forecasting rapid temperature change abjectly fail to explain recent climate behavior.

Mr. President [Obama], your characterization of the scientific facts regarding climate change and the degree of certainty informing the scientific debate is simply incorrect.”
