Audubon President David Yarnold today condemned the Trump Administration's decision to begin the process of pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement.
“Scrapping the Paris climate agreement is an abdication of American leadership in the fight against the biggest threat facing people and birds,” said David Yarnold (@david_yarnold), Audubon’s president and CEO, in response to the White House's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accords, the world's most ambitious greenhouse gas-reduction agreement to date.
“Our kids and grandkids are the losers in this misguided decision. So are 314 species of birds that Audubon already knows are at risk because of climate change. We don't believe that's what Americans voted for in November."
