Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Val Demings, Florida’s 10th Congressional District, responds to President Trump’s decision to pull out of Paris Climate Agreement:

 “By walking away from the Paris Climate Agreement, we are sending a strong message of indifference to our allies around the world.

 “Surrounded by coastlines, Florida knows the impact climate change and rising sea levels have on our homes, businesses and tourism.

 “Additionally, Florida ecosystems, such as the Everglades, the Ten Thousand Islands, and the Big Bend coastline are already exhibiting signs of sea-level stress.

 “We have a moral obligation to protect our natural resources for our children, their children and the generations to come. Our nation has to continue to be a global leader on Climate change.”
