Trump climate challenge

Our American counterparts condemn the President's decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement

Green Party of the United States

President Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Agreement was hardly a surprising move, given the climate change scepticism at the heart of his cabinet, and his recent announcement that he will seek a new and better international agreement fools no one.

We in the Green Party of the United States strongly condemn President Trump's short-sighted decision to withdraw the US from the agreement and will continue to be active in our opposition to Trump's decision as well as working to curb the effects of climate change here in the US through policies such as the Green New Deal that would create millions of new jobs and achieve 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030.

The challenge currently facing us is bigger than one man, and we will continue to fight for a cleaner, safer, healthier environment in the US and beyond, one that will be here long after President Trump has gone.
