Condemn Donald Trump's reckless abandonment of the Paris Climate Agreement!






Dear Eric,

In a historic display of ignorance, President Donald Trump just announced he plans to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Donald Trump is making a shameful mistake of historic proportions. Our grandchildren will look back with stunned dismay at how a world leader could be so divorced from reality and morality. He is abandoning millions of Americans who will bear the brunt of climate disruption -- from record floods to droughts and hurricanes that destroy people's homes and livelihoods.

Leaving the agreement is also an outrageous abandonment of American leadership. The move will put Trump alongside Syria's Bashar Al Assad and Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega (who'd like to make it stronger) as the only three world leaders keeping their countries out of the climate accord. With almost 70% of Americans supporting the Paris Agreement -- including majorities in every state -- it's clear that Donald Trump's reckless action is completely out of step with the wishes of most Americans.1

With or without Donald Trump, the world will continue to move forward on climate. The other G7 country leaders just reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris Agreement and the European Union and China have pledged to stick with the agreement, with or without Trump.

As Donald Trump plans to stands down, Sierra Club supporters like you will continue to stand up. Even if a climate denier in the White House makes our task more difficult, we will continue the transition to 100% clean energy. We'll fight like never before to halt new fossil fuel projects including dangerous pipelines, fracking infrastructure, and dirty power plants -- and we'll retire existing ones. Our states and cities will also continue the move away from fossil fuels in favor of affordable clean energy.

Trump may try to claim this as a victory, but he's wrong. We've already shown that when we show up, we win. With our allies, Sierra Club members and supporters have helped retire more than 250 polluting coal plants. We've ensured more than 25 American cities have already committed to getting 100 percent of their energy from clean, renewable sources by 2030.

Donald Trump can't stop our progress.
