CHARLESTON, SC – In response to this afternoon’s announcement from the President that the United States would withdraw from the Paris agreement on climate, Coastal Conservation League Energy and Climate Director Eddy Moore issued the following statement:

Our changing climate calls for action at all levels of government. Frequent flooding from rising sea levels threatens our cities; droughts threaten our farmers; and hotter summers threaten our health. When Washington fails to lead, it is left to city and states to take the reins to create clean jobs, resilient infrastructure, and weatherproof economies.

Actively addressing climate change will ensure that South Carolinians can enjoy the same quality of life in the future that we enjoy today. We are counting on local leadership and action to fill in the gaps where this administration is shirking responsibility.
