The decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement stands in stark opposition to the overwhelming scientific consensus that climate change is a real and active threat to communities around the world and to future generations. In addition, the fact that this decision was made without the input of a Presidential science advisor -- a position that remains unfilled -- is deeply troubling to all those who care about the role of science in informing policy.
The United States’ withdrawal from this global agreement is completely out of step with the views of a majority of Americans in all 50 states who support participation in the Paris Agreement, as well as the findings of social scientists that show action on climate change can bolster economies.
In the absence of leadership from our federal government, we urge decision-makers in towns,
counties, cities and states across the United States to join the United States Climate Alliance along with the at least 10 states, over 200 cities, countless Institutions and companies around the United States to heed the science on climate change and continue to take action to address this global threat to public health, global economies, and national security.
