Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher Statement on Withdrawal From Paris Climate Agreement

Houston, November 5, 2019

(Houston, TX) – Today, Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher (TX-07) issued the following statement on President Trump’s formal withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement:

“Withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement further isolates the United States and tells the world we are not a reliable partner. That is not who we are, and it is not who we should be. We need American engagement now more than ever, as leaders and visionaries for our future.”

In April, Congresswoman Fletcher wrote an op-ed on Houston’s important role in the climate change discussion.
