KENNEDY STATEMENT ON PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT
Newton, MA – Congressman Joe Kennedy III released the following statement in response to reports that President Trump will pull out of the historic Paris Climate Accord.
“For American families, businesses and communities, climate change isn’t just about the next generation – it’s about the next week. Today, our cities and towns are being battered by severe weather. Our homes are being threatened by rising sea levels. Our industry is being crippled by fire and drought, and our children are growing up with polluted land and polluted lungs. President Trump’s threatened withdrawal from this agreement won’t just undermine global leadership and abandon moral responsibility, it will actively sacrifice the immediate health and safety of American citizens.”
