Governor Carney Urges President Trump to Keep U.S. in Paris Climate Agreement

Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control | Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy | Governor John Carney | Office of the Governor | The Environment | Date Posted: Wednesday, May 3, 2017



WILMINGTON, Del. Governor John Carney released the following statement Wednesday after joining 11 other governors in writing a letter to urge President Donald Trump to keep the U.S. in the Paris Climate Agreement to reduce carbon pollution and combat climate change.

“The effects of climate change are already taking a toll on Delawareans. As a low-lying coastal state, Delaware is vulnerable to damage from sea level rise, stronger storm surges, and routine flooding. These threats will only increase if we don’t work together to reduce the human emissions of greenhouse gases that feed rapid climate change. I stand with my fellow governors to strongly urge the President to take the path to a healthy and sustainable future by joining with a dedicated global community through the Paris Agreement.”
