LCV Statement on Trump Threatening to Renegotiate Paris Climate Agreement

May 17, 2016

Washington, D.C. – In response to Donald Trump’s statement today that he would renegotiate the historic international Paris climate agreement, LCV President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement:

“This is another example of Trump’s dangerous lack of judgment and the very real impacts it could have for all of us. Trump now not only denies the science of climate change, but also the politics and economics of it. America’s leadership in Paris has put the world on the path to a clean energy future that will create jobs and save lives both in the US and around the world. Fortunately, Trump’s rhetoric is not going to stop the Paris agreement, nor should it given the benefits of action and the costs of ignorance.”
