Democratic Party of Wisconsin Statement on the President’s Decision to Withdraw From The Paris Agreement
"Anyone who cares about the future of our planet and the future of our economy should remember his action this week and plan to vote him out of office..."
“Withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement is a global embarrassment and gross abdication of American leadership. Not only does President Trump‘s decision fly in the face of scientific consensus about the impacts of climate change, it defies the wishes of the business community, international allies, and religious leaders, including Pope Francis.
“Furthermore, pulling out of the Paris agreement would hurt the U.S. economy and actually make the U.S. less competitive. We only need to look at the booming clean energy industry here in the U.S. to see how our values actually boost good jobs and the economy.
“Democrats are speaking with one voice, encouraging President Trump to stay in the Paris agreement because it is a historic step forward in our efforts to preserve our planet for future generations that is also fueling innovative industries right at home.
“The President has agreed to honor the four-year withdrawal process outlined in the Paris Agreement. Anyone who cares about the future of our planet and the future of our economy should remember his action this week and plan to vote him out of office to put a stop to our country’s withdrawal from such a vitally important agreement.”
