UK climate scientists raise concerns about Trump presidency
British climate scientists asked Britain's prime minister on Monday to press US President-elect Donald Trump to acknowledge climate change risks and support international action to slow global warming.

Prime Minister Theresa May will meet Trump in Washington in the spring, in the first visit with the new president by the leader of one of the United States' closest allies.

In a letter to May, the 100 scientists said there were "potential threats" to the British national interest from Trump's election in November.

Trump has dismissed the idea of man-made climate change as a hoax and several department chief nominees in his incoming administration, such as the head of the US Environmental Protection Agency, have rejected evidence of the risks.
