We're joining the ranks of leading climate action and environmental organizations to say to the 194 countries committed to the Paris Agreement, that we're still in.
It's no longer news now that on June 1st, President Trump announced the United States would withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. We've provided a legal breakdown of what this will entail and highlighted state and local actions that affirm climate action commitments to the Paris Agreement in our last blog.
Regardless of how slow-motion an actual US withdrawal will be, President Trump's announcement in the Rose Garden threatens our security, our public health and welfare, our economic prosperity, and our clean energy industry, which supports millions of US jobs - more than all fossil fuels combined. It threatens the air we breathe and the water we drink. It threatens our ecosystems and our planet.
Withdrawing from the Paris Agreement does not represent the will of the American people. There is something you can do.
Governors, mayors, businesses, investors, and universities across the country have started collaborating as never before to work toward the goals of the Paris Agreement. They’re still in, and we are too.
