Tell Congress: Oppose Withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement
It happened. Today, two years after announcing his intention, President Trump has started the formal, year-long process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement.
As the world’s second largest emitter of greenhouse gas emissions, exiting the Paris Agreement is an abdication of our moral responsibility to address climate change and protect vulnerable peoples. Act now: Call your members of Congress and urge them to publicly oppose the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement!
As people of faith, we disagreed with withdrawal two years ago; and we disagree now. The science is abundantly clear: the climate crisis is causing increased health problems, warming our oceans, and exacerbating unprecedented weather events, like the wildfires raging in California.
The United States has a moral responsibility to remain a leader in the international effort to address the global issue of climate change. Urge Congress to publicly oppose U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement.
