Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC) is an independent research institute where scientists investigate climate change causes, dynamics, and impacts around the globe. In June 2016, WHRC was ranked as the top independent climate change think tank in the world for the third year in a row. Dr. Philip Duffy, President of WHRC, expressed serious concern today over news that the U.S. plans to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord. His reaction is echoed by WHRC Senior Advisor John Holdren, former Science Advisor to President Obama. Their statements can be found at http://whrc.org/withdrawal-from-paris/.
