Climate scientists send open letter to Dutch government

"Embrace the wealth of climate knowledge: delaying incurs greater costs." This is the resounding message conveyed by a dozen distinguished Dutch climate scientists in an open letter addressed to the government. These esteemed academics contend that previous administrations have taken a rather lenient stance on addressing the climate crisis, and they express their deep-seated dissatisfaction with this approach. Furthermore, they offer invaluable insights on how to formulate more effective climate policies.

Among the signatories of this letter are Utrecht Professors Sybren Drijfhout (Faculty of Science), Roderik van de Wal (Faculty of Science and Geosciences), Detlef van Vuuren (Faculty of Geosciences) and Marjolijn Haasnoot (Faculty of Geosciences). For a comprehensive understanding of their perspective, please read the article featured in the reputable newspaper Trouw (in Dutch).
