350.org on Trump administration’s COP 24 statement

Following an official statement from the Trump administration addressing the leadership and attendees of COP 24 and reaffirming Trump’s decision to remove the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, 350.org Executive Director May Boeve gave the following response:

“Once again, the Trump administration is pandering to corporate polluters at the expense of those suffering the worst impacts of climate change. From boasting about fossil fuel production to refusing endorsement of the staggering UN IPCC report on the climate crisis, the official US response to COP 24 has been deeply disturbing. Despite this administration’s actions, communities across America are building support from the ground up for transformative climate action. These past weeks, momentum has soared for a Green New Deal, bringing climate change to the forefront in headlines and the halls of power. Trump and his allies can dig in their heels, but the movement for a just transition off of fossil fuels to a 100% renewable energy economy won’t be stopped.”
