(November 4, 2019 – Des Moines) Eddie Mauro has released the following statement after the Trump administration provided formal notice of withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement:
Donald Trump has again shown he is willing to betray our children’s future to corporate interest. Despite being forced to adapt his Florida golf course to accommodate rising sea levels, Trump continues to bury his head in the sand trap. The Paris Climate Agreement was a critical step forward to not only combat the climate crisis, but also to secure our nation and the world. America’s unilateral withdrawal will be remembered for generations. The climate crisis is real, and we need real leadership to tackle this head on.
