Take Action on the Paris Climate Agreement

November 08, 2019
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

On Monday, November 4, President Trump took formal action to start the yearlong process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement. This agreement brings together almost 200 nations to address climate change through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, adaptation efforts, and climate finance.

As the world’s largest historical emitter of greenhouse gases, exiting the Paris Agreement is an abdication of our moral responsibility to address climate change and protect vulnerable peoples.

Call or Send a message to your members of Congress and urge them to publicly oppose the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement!
