President Trump: Don’t Withdraw from Paris Climate Agreement

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Ensure the United States does not withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.

The Trump Administration is currently weighing whether to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords. If executed it would continue an all-out assault on climate change mitigation efforts. This has included contracting the Environmental Protection Agency, defunding climate research and rolling back climate regulation.

144 countries have ratified the historic climate pact which represents a global mission to avoid catastrophic climate change in keeping temperature rise below 1.5 Celsius.  The United States remaining engaged is critical as the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases, accounting for over 15% of total global emissions.

Opposition to withdrawal from Paris is growing in the United States. Large corporations including Apple, Walmart and DuPont have voiced support for the agreement citing a benefit from consistent regulation and the potential of renewable energy. The diplomatic community has warned that withdrawal would erode our standing in the world, ceding climate leadership to China and the European Union. A consistent 70% of Americans surveyed have voiced their support for the Paris Agreement. This was further displayed as thousands marched in Earth Day protests calling for action to address climate change.

We cannot abdicate our responsibility to the world and future generations at a critical moment for the climate change movement. Please sign the below petition demanding President Trump confirm our commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

I am writing to demand that the United States remain committed to the Paris Climate Agreement. Corporations, diplomats and a large majority of the American people are opposed to your stated desire for withdrawal.

You are likely to be unmoved by the international scorn and judgment of future generations which such an action would elicit. However, you should be aware that projected sea level rise as a consequence of climate change may eventually coastal areas including that surrounding Mar-a-Lago. The Paris Climate Agreement will help ensure the survival of your most cherished legacy.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
