Tyndall Centre Directors Appeal to the US Administration to Continue to Support US and International Climate Initiatives

19th April, 2017

As Donald Trump is attempting to undo the Obama plans to curb climate change, Tyndall Centre Directors appeal to the US Administration and Congress to consider the enormous amount of evidence that shows that human-activities are adversely changing the Earth’s climate.

Tyndall Centre Directors urge the US to continue to demonstrate global leadership by remaining active members of the Paris Agreement and significantly reducing US greenhouse gas emissions by transitioning to a low-carbon economy.

"Successfully tackling climate change is key to a prosperous and safe future. The US can help support the rapid transition to a low-carbon economy and benefit in return. If the US choses to step aside, we must hope that there is a significant strengthening of the international resolve, with the US being relieved of its leadership role by other progressive nations. "
