Ask Your Governor to Uphold the Paris Climate Accord

Although Trump made the environmentally devastating and politically foolhardy decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, individual states maintain their control over their own carbon emission standards and clean energy priorities.

If enough states commit to maintaining the standards of the Paris Climate Agreement, the collective achievement can offset the adverse effects of the Trump-led national withdrawal. Governors Jerry Brown of California, Andrew Cuomo of New York and Jay Inslee of Washington formed a "United States Climate Alliance" immediately after the announcement of Trump's Paris Accord decision.

So far, nine states have joined the United States Climate Alliance.

Urge your state's Governor to join the cause and continue the fight against climate change.
