Matsui Statement on Reports that President Trump Will Withdraw From Paris Climate Agreement

 

Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) issued the following statement on reports that President Trump will withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement:

“Withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement would put the future of our country and our world at risk. The science is clear. If we don’t act on climate in this pivotal moment, future generations will be the ones who pay the price. Yet, at a time when the world is looking to our country for leadership, the President seems intent on stepping back. We must keep fighting to reduce carbon emissions and preserve the health, economic, and environmental security of our communities.”
