Green Party talking points on Trump's withdrawal of the U.S. from the Paris accord on climate change
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders and candidates strongly condemned President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement on climate change, which he announced on Thursday, June 1.
"The Trump Administration has made a clear choice -- a short-term boost for the extracted fuels industry and business as usual, over a balanced ecosystem for our planet. This is not President Trump's decision to make. The stakes are too high, the consequences too grave. We're encouraging activism across the U.S. to counteract the effects of Mr. Trump's appalling decision," said Neal Gale, Green candidate for Judge of Elections in Abington, Pennsylvania, in District 12-1.
