A scientific organization is pushing back on President Donald Trump's recent claims regarding climate change, saying his remarks did not reflect what the scientific community has concluded.

Trump told Piers Morgan on Great Britain's ITV News the polar ice caps are "at a record level" and said "there is a cooling, and there's a heating."

"I mean, look, it used to not be climate change, it used to be global warming," Trump said. "That wasn't working too well because it was getting too cold all over the place."

The Boston-based American Meteorological Society (AMS) sent a letter to Trump regarding the comments.

"Unfortunately, these and other climate-related comments in the interview are not consistent with scientific observations from around the globe, nor with scientific conclusions based on these observations," the AMS wrote. "U.S Executive Branch agencies such as NASA and NOAA have been central to developing these observations and assessing their implications. This climate information provides a robust starting point for meaningful discussion of important policy issues employing the best available knowledge and understanding."

The organization offered to assist the White House "to ensure that you and your staff are working with credible and scientifically validated information as you navigate the many difficult policy areas impacted by the Earth's changing climate."

The group highlighted its letter to Trump on Twitter Tuesday afternoon:
