Congressman Ted Lieu

Representing the 33rd District of California

REP. LIEU ON REPORTS OF U.S. PULLING OUT OF PARIS CLIMATE DEAL

May 31, 2017
Press Release

Washington - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) issued the following statement regarding reports that President Trump will withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement.

“Though not surprised, I am deeply disappointed by reports of Trump’s intent to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. Such a withdrawal would be misguided, ill-informed, and backward-looking. We should not be making America dirtier again. Abandoning the Agreement would also result in the United States ceding its leadership in addressing carbon and methane pollution at a time when we cannot afford inaction. Now more than ever we need states like California as well as our allies overseas to fill Trump’s void and continue fighting for a greener planet.”

“P.S. Coal is not coming back."
