Climate Accord Riles DC Mayor

Bowser Slams Trump Admin Over Climate Accord

(Washington, DC) — DC Mayor Muriel Bowser is slamming the Trump administration for formally pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement. In a Twitter thread today, Bowser said if the federal government refuses to confront the growing threat of climate change, then cities and states must continue stepping up to fill the leadership vacuum. She said DC will honor the goals of the climate agreement, and will do its part to build a stronger, more resilient and sustainable city and planet. The mayor’s statement comes after the Trump administration formally notified the United Nations it will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.
