While President Trump and his administration have doubled down on their refusal to make climate policy a priority, leaders from businesses, states, and cities have expressed their continuing support for the Paris Agreement by saying they are “Still In.”
These leaders know that a majority of Americans want the government to act on climate. That’s why House leaders have introduced the Climate Action Now Act (H.R. 9) to ensure America honors its Paris Agreement commitments, and to lay the groundwork for further climate action.
The Climate Action Now Act would take meaningful action by preventing any federal funds from being used to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement and requiring the Trump administration to produce a real plan within 120 days to achieve U.S. commitments under the Paris Agreement. In addition, Senate Democrats have also introduced a resolution calling for the United States and Congress to take bold, substantive climate action.
We can’t allow climate deniers who refuse to acknowledge the facts surrounding climate change to set the tone for the vast majority of constituents who are concerned about what will happen if we don’t act now. Our future is too important.
Take action now! Tell your members of Congress you want the United States to keep its commitments to our climate.
