Congresswoman Matsui Statement on Historic Paris Climate Summit Agreement
  Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) issued the following statement on the historic climate agreement reached at the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP21):
“I commend President Obama, Secretary Kerry, and the entire Administration for their leadership in securing an ambitious climate agreement at the COP21 Paris Climate Summit,” said Congresswoman Doris Matsui. “Nearly 200 nations have taken an historic step forward in securing a cleaner and healthier world for our children and grandchildren.
“The world community has sent a message that the climate crisis is real and should be taken seriously, and our country’s leadership is more critical than ever.  I hope my colleagues in Congress will work together on climate solutions that adequately answer the challenge put forth by our leaders in Paris.
“In the decades ahead, we must continue to do our part to prevent further damage to the climate by implementing the President’s Clean Power Plan and increasing investments in our clean energy future.”
