Dingell Statement on the Trump Administration’s Formal Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord.
DEARBORN, MI – Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s formal withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord:
“President Trump’s decision to move forward with withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Accord is stunning, but not surprising. As the California fires rage, even the biggest climate deniers have to see that global climate change is real.
“At this consequential moment, the United States of America should be leading all countries in the fight against climate change and not pulling back from the world stage. This is an existential threat we all must face together. Bold, urgent actions and defined goals are needed. Let’s set our course to achieving a 100 percent clean, net-zero economy—as called for in the United Nations IPCC 2018 climate report.
“My colleagues and I are working on legislation to set this ambitious goal. Introduction and more details on the 100% Clean Economy Act will be coming soon. It’s only through American might, ingenuity, and leadership that we can rise to meet this moment for future generations and the planet we call home.”
