Kuster Statement on Trump’s Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord
Concord, NH – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) issued the following statement after President Trump submitted a formal notification to the international community that the United States will leave the Paris Climate Accord.
“Climate change is one of the most daunting challenges of our time, yet President Trump continues to put our environment, health, economy and national security at risk as he denies this frightening reality,” said Rep. Kuster. “This formal withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord will only weaken our ability to combat the growing threat of climate change. I strongly urge the President to remain in this critical agreement and take much-needed action to protect our environment and our future.”
Congresswoman Kuster is a co-sponsor of the Climate Action Now Act, which would require the Trump Administration to remain in the Paris Climate Accord and to establish a plan for how the United States will meet its commitment to reduce pollution. She has been vocal about the need to address climate change and has pushed back against the decision by President Trump to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.
