AMS: Trump Claim About Climate Scientists ‘Misleading And Very Damaging’

"In his interview with Lesley Stahl on Sunday night, President Trump said that climate scientists who find that human activities are driving climate change have a “very big political agenda.”

The American Meteorological Society (AMS), the leading scientific society for meteorology and related disciplines, pushed back forcefully on that assertion.

In a letter to Trump published Tuesday, the AMS called Trump’s claim “misleading and very damaging.”"
