Over a hundred Professors and Scientists from the central valley want President Trump to acknowledge that climate change is a legitimate phenomenon. They joined together in sending an open letter to the new President during his first month in office.
Over thirty Professors from Fresno State are among those signing the letter. The letter asks President Trump to honor commitments made in the Paris Climate Accord. Trump has said in the past that he may withdraw from agreements the U.S. Entered to in the accords.
Thursday night on Eyewitness News at 7:00 Dr. Joshua Reece from Fresno State’s Biological Sciences joined us to discuss the importance of the letter and what educators hope to accomplish by sending it. He says President Trump ignores climate change to his own peril.
