Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Julia Brownley released the following statement after President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement signed by 194 other countries:

“President Trump’s decision to begin withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement is a disappointing retreat from American global leadership,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “If the President and his Administration won’t step up, then state and local governments, private industry, and individual citizens across the country must. The task of curbing climate change falls on all citizens of the world. We all must do our part to stop pollution, protect public health, and build a competitive 21st Century, clean energy economy.”
