Paris climate agreement: Companies, universities, states sign ‘we are still in’ statement
International Business Times - 06/05/2017
More than 1,200 governors, mayors, higher education leaders and businesses signed a statement declaring “We Are Still In.” The statement says: “The Trump administration’s announcement undermines a key pillar in the fight against climate change and damages the world’s ability to avoid the most dangerous and costly effects of climate change. Importantly, it is also out of step with what is happening in the United States.”
The states that signed the letter include Virginia, Oregon and North Carolina. Additionally, companies like Google, Tesla, Apple, Amazon and Yahoo! Inc. all signed, along with the presidents of New York University, Northeastern University, and the universities of Oregon, California and Connecticut, among others.
