Deutch Statement on Trump Admin. Move to Formally Withdraw from Paris Climate Agreement
Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22), the founding co-chair of the House bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, issued this statement after President Trump formally began the process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris agreement:
"Only in Washington, D.C. is climate change a partisan issue. The rest of the nation understands that climate change is a real, serious, and worsening threat to communities. We can't wait for President Trump and his Administration of climate deniers to wake up. As the President tries to make it easier for polluters, Congress needs to step up and create the change we need to reduce our carbon emissions and confront this crisis."
