President Trump, his new EPA administrator Scott Pruitt, and some in Congress are attempting to block or weaken clean air and climate protections like the Clean Power Plan. Tell your member of Congress to support full implementation of the Clean Air Act and the Clean Power Plan.
Mr. Trump, we should not abandon the Paris Climate Agreement
May 8, 2017
Please join us in telling President Trump: The United States absolutely should not withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.
The Agreement—the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal—sets out a global action plan to put the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change. Almost the entire community of nations—195 nations including the U.S.—adopted the Agreement at the Paris climate conference in December 2015.
Call President Trump. Here's how.
Tell President Trump that, for our health and survival, the U.S. should remain in the Paris Climate Agreement.
Call the White House comment line today: 202-456-1111. (Note, there may be a wait for your call to be answered.)
Call today. President Trump may be making his decision tomorrow.
Tell the volunteer who answers your call:
1. Introduce yourself.
- Your name, home city, and state.
- If you vote, say so.
- If you are a health professional, say so.
2. Say why you are concerned about climate change. Examples (but use your own examples and put in your own words):
- Climate change is harming our health. It contributes to heat stroke, dangerous extreme weather, the spread of insect-borne and water-borne diseases, and sea level rise.
- Climate change is damaging our economy. In 2016, there were 15 extreme weather and climate disasters that cost the U.S $46 billion dollars in losses.
3. Say that the U.S. should stay in the Paris Climate Agreement. Here are some reasons you can cite (again, use your own words):
- The U.S. people strongly support the Paris Agreement and support a clean energy economy.
- Clean energy is good for health. It will reduce rates of lung disease, asthma, heart attacks and strokes.
- The rest of the world is leaving us behind in developing clean energy. China invested $78.3 billion in renewables in 2016—that's 69% more than the U.S.
- Clean energy will generate new jobs in American cities.
- We should remain a diplomatic leader in the world. We should support a diplomatic process for a healthy future, especially one that is supported by almost every country.
