Eshoo Statement on Paris Agreement Entering Into Force

November 4th, 2016

WASHINGTON, D.C.–Representative Anna G. Eshoo (D-Calif.) released the following statement after the Paris Agreement to address global climate change officially entered into force on Friday, November 4, 2016.

“Today the most comprehensive climate change agreement in world history takes effect, less than a year after it was agreed to in Paris. This historic agreement provides a path forward for the global community to take strong action on climate change and prevent a devastating increase in global temperatures.

“As one of the world’s largest polluters, the United States must lead by example and we have a plan to do so by limiting the greenhouse gas emissions of power plants. The President’s Clean Power Plan is firmly grounded in the Supreme Court’s 2007 decision upholding the authority of the EPA to regulate carbon dioxide under the Clean Air Act, and I’m confident it will be upheld by the courts. California is leading the world in the transition to a renewable future and I will continue to support policies in Congress to ensure the United States meets and exceeds our commitments in the Paris Agreement.

“Decades from now, historians will note November 4, 2016 as a date which marked a turning point when the world began to tackle the climate challenge.”
