15 of the Best Responses to Trump Withdrawing from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change

President Donald Trump’s announcement earlier this week his plans to withdraw from the Paris Climate Change Agreement, joining only Syria and Nicaragua in doing so. There’s not much we can say that hasn’t been said already about it, so we’ve collected some of our favorite responses thus far.

Today, the future livability of our planet was threatened by President Trump’s careless decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement. Our future on this planet is now more at risk than ever before. For Americans and those in the world community looking for strong leadership on climate issues, this action is deeply discouraging. Now, more than ever, we must be determined to solve climate change, and to challenge those leaders who do not believe in scientific facts or empirical truths. It is time for all of us to stand up, organize, fight back, and channel our energy into grassroots political action.
