Top Climate Treaty Pullout Quotes From Americans

American students protest -The Star





With our world speeding toward a climate catastrophe, Trump just stepped on the gas. -350.org executive director, May Boeve

President Trump's decision to exit the Paris Climate Agreement sends a dangerous signal to the rest of the world that the United States values fossil fuel industry profits over clean energy innovation and the health and well-being of our citizens. –Earthworks executive director, Jennifer Krill



By choosing to walk away from the table, the United States effectively becomes a rogue nation when it comes to matters of climate change, human rights and global leadership in general.  Food and Water Watch executive director, Wenonah Hauter





“ It's a stupid and reckless decision. But it's not stupid and reckless in the normal way. Instead, it amounts to a thorough repudiation of two of the civilizing forces on our planet: diplomacy and science. Far from putting America first, Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Agreement is a short-sighted sop to the fossil fuel lobby. It is a profound failure of American global leadership. It willfully ignores the climate crisis. It will cost U.S. workers clean energy jobs. History will judge withdrawing from the Paris Agreement as a huge error.  -350.org co-founder Bill McKibben



“ Generations from now, Americans will look back at Donald Trump's decision to leave the Paris Agreement as one of the most ignorant and dangerous actions ever taken by any President. Trump's decision to ignore the vast majority of the American public and the scientific community will harm our country, costing us lives, jobs and our role as a world leader. Trump has isolated our country on the world stage, ceding our leadership position and our economic advantage on clean energy to India and China, and justifying it all by chanting a slogan from a baseball hat.  -Sierra Club executive director, Michael Brune




“ We will harness public outrage into meaningful on-the-ground action. By working at the local and regional level, communities can organize for powerful and lasting change, forcing elected officials to choose a side: that of Trump and his fossil fuel billionaire cabinet, or that of the people fighting for a stable climate and an economy that works for everyone. -Earthjustice president, Trip Van Noppen




“ The rest of America will keep fighting global warming and this reckless president. We'll battle his dangerous agenda in the courts, in the streets, and at the state and local level across the country. We won't let corporate power and this corrupt administration condemn our planet to disaster. -Center for Biological Diversity executive directorKierán Suckling  [Common Dreams]


“ This has nothing to do with serving America’s national interest. The U.S. economy, in particular, would do just fine under the Paris accord. This isn’t about nationalism; mainly, it’s about sheer spite… Don’t tell me that it’s about coal miners. Anyone who really cared about those miners would be crusading to protect their health, disability and pension benefits, and trying to provide alternative employment opportunities – not pretending that environmental irresponsibility will somehow bring back jobs lost to strip mining and mountaintop removal.” -Nobel Prize-winner, Paul Krugman [New York Times]

“ I wish he hadn't just because it makes us seem as though we're not in with the rest of the world in combating climate change. So the whole appearance of it isn't good. -Gillette, Wyoming coal mine safety operator, Lora Dilley [CNN]
