Today, Trump pulled the United States out of the monumental Paris Agreement. This is unacceptable. To fight climate change, we need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and to do that, we need policies in place to mandate action. Unfortunately, back in March, Trump gutted all of our nation's climate protections, too.
Fortunately, cities, states, and business leaders are in early discussions to create their own carbon reduction agreements to replace the commitments our country made in Paris. They understand how important it is to cut emissions and combat climate change.
How cool would that be? If cities and states came together to agree to meet the national reduction standards in the Paris Agreement?
We're asking you to join us by calling your governor. Tell them that regardless of Trump bailing on the Paris Agreement, you want your home state to set limits for greenhouse gas emissions. Ask them to stand up and be a leader. We need to reduce carbon emissions to fight climate change, protect public health, move to a clean energy economy, and to protect our winters.
