A letter from American business leaders urging then President Obama to support the Copenhagen negotiations and push for legislation addressing climate change.

One of the signatories was a Donald Trump.

From the Times article:
 
"Murray Energy — despite its enormous clout with Mr. Trump and his top environmental official — boasts a payroll with only 6,000 employees. The coal industry nationwide is responsible for about [url=https://energy.gov/sites/prod/files/2017/01/f34/2017 US Energy and Jobs Report_0.pdf]160,000 jobs,[/url] with just 65,000 directly in mining, according to the federal Energy Information Administration.
By comparison, General Electric alone has 104,000 employees in the United States, and Apple has 80,000. Their chief executives openly pressed Mr. Trump to stick with Paris, as did dozens of other major corporations that have continued to support regulatory efforts to combat climate change."

The title of the post itself is wrong.
