REPRESENTATIVE HANABUSA CRITICAL OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S DECISION TO WITHDRAW FROM THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD

June 1, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – On Thursday, June 1, 2017, President Trump announced that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord. 

 

Colleen Hanabusa:  Scientific data confirms that climate change is real and the only way we can move forward, as a nation and world, is to make the admission and address the threat to our environment, air, land, health and way of life.  President Trump's decision today highlights one of the fundamental differences between Republicans and Democrats and it is a sad statement that Republicans continue to refute science and the will of the international community on an issue of global importance.
