Eric Garcetti on Energy & Oil
Statement from the Climate Mayors in Response to President Trump's Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement: As 407 US Mayors representing 70 million Americans, we will adopt, honor, and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement. We will push for new action to meet the 1.5 degrees Celsius target, and work together to create a 21st century clean energy economy.
We will continue to lead. We are increasing investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency. We will buy and create more demand for electric cars and trucks. We will increase our efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create a clean energy economy, and stand for environmental justice. And if the President wants to break the promises made to our allies enshrined in the historic Paris Agreement, we'll build and strengthen relationships around the world to protect the planet from devastating climate risks.
Opposing argument from the Heritage Foundation, 6/1/2017:
President Donald Trump has fulfilled a key campaign pledge. The Paris Agreement, which committed the U.S. to drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions, was a truly bad deal. Here are four reasons Trump was right to withdraw.
