Kuster Statement on Decision by President Trump to Withdraw from Paris Climate Agreement

(Concord, NH) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02), a member of the Bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus and the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition, released the following statement on the decision by President Trump to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement:

“This politically motivated decision will only serve to undermine our ability to take on climate change which is one of the most daunting challenges of our times,” said Congresswoman Kuster. “Withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement will cede American leadership on this issue and end our commitment to fighting to avert the worst consequences of climate change. We’re already seeing the impact of climate change in New Hampshire and failure to act will threaten our environment and our economy. I call on President Trump to reverse course on this terrible decision. Americans want action and the world agrees the time to act is now.”
