U.S. Climate Leadership – One Year Later…

One year ago, President Trump announced his intention to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement – abandoning the federal government’s role in leading efforts to combat climate change.

But since then, Americans have stepped up. Over 2,700 leaders from states, cities, and businesses – representing 159 million people and $6.2 trillion in GDP – declared “We Are Still In” and are ramping actions to cut carbon pollution as the rest of the world continues to work toward the goals of the Paris Agreement.
