Eshoo Condemns Trump’s Decision to Withdraw from Paris Climate Accord

June 1st, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C— Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA) released a statement today after President Trump announced that he intends to withdraw from the landmark Paris Climate Accord:

“The President’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement is deeply irresponsible and dangerous. This landmark agreement is a shining example of American leadership on the global stage and our commitments are firmly grounded in U.S. law. With this action, the President has surrendered that leadership and put our planet at greater risk of catastrophic sea level rise, severe weather, and other impacts which threaten our health, environment, and national security.

“The genius of the Paris Agreement is that each country’s commitments are voluntary, meaning the only reason to exit the agreement is a political one. The President has once again put politics over country by making the U.S. one of only three countries, including Syria and Nicaragua, out of over 190 that will not be parties to the agreement. After years of calling climate change a “hoax”, the President and his party have now thrown away leadership of the 21st century clean energy economy to China and the rest of the world.”
