On the eve of the Copenhagen conference, business leaders published an open letter demanding urgent climate action. The letter was signed by Donald Trump along with Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric. Here’s some of the language of the letter:
“We support your effort to ensure meaningful and effective measures to control climate change, an immediate challenge facing the United States and the world today. Please don’t postpone the earth. If we fail to act now, it is scientifically irrefutable that there will be catastrophic and irreversible consequences for humanity and our planet.
“We recognize the key role that American innovation and leadership play in stimulating the worldwide economy. Investing in a Clean Energy Economy will drive state-of-the-art technologies that will spur economic growth, create new energy jobs, and increase our energy security all while reducing the harmful emissions that are putting our planet at risk.”
I’m going to forego any editorial comment. You can see the full letter and list of signatories here.
