Congressman Lowenthal Statement On Trump Decision To Withdraw U.S. From Historic Paris Climate Accord

Washington, D.C., June 1, 2017 | comments

Congressman Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) today issued the following statement on President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change:

“President Trump, in a short-sighted and infantile move, has now set the U.S. against the world. We are now the outsiders. We are now isolated. And while I am sure President Trump would have it no other way, his cowardly decision to leave the Paris Agreement does nothing to help anyone. Quite the opposite.

“It is clear that there will be no help or concern from the White House for our planet or for our future. This is a complete abdication of leadership.

“The voice of the American people, of her business leaders, of her scientists, have been clear in the past few days: walk away from Paris and we walk alone--diplomatically, environmentally, and economically.

“The Trump Administration owns this decision. It will be one of the defining moments of their tenure. But, they will have to defend it--every day. They will have to prove that they are right--which I don’t think they are. And while they will have to live with the decision, we and everyone else will have to live with the resulting impacts to our planet.

“I will continue to fight to protect our environment. I will continue to hold this administration’s feet to the fire on the issue of the environment. States like California will also. Cities like Long Beach will continue to fight. I know a great many Americans will also. This cannot stand. This is not who we are as a nation.”
