Statement Regarding President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement

Toledo, OH—“Retreating from climate action hurts our economy, our environment and our public health.  Fiat-Chrysler is investing $2 billion in our region’s Jeep factories to build more fuel efficient vehicles that reduce emissions, yet President Trump and Congress want to go backward.  Lake Erie is a source of drinking water for tens of millions, yet President Trump wants to eliminate funding, monitoring, research and a federal commitment to address harmful algal blooms.  His short-sighted decision today on the Paris Agreement puts local companies like First Solar at a disadvantage to Chinese and European competitors.  Lucas County stands with forward-thinking businesses, states and communities that will continue action to reduce emissions and grow jobs consistent with the climate pledge made by the United States last year.”
