Trump Administration Seeks to Pull out of Climate Change Initiatives

“We’re not spending money on that anymore. We consider that to be a waste of your money to go out and do that.”

— Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget

As if the Trump administration couldn’t do anything worse for the environment. Once again, they managed to shock some and disgust others.

The Trump administration seeks to pull out of international agreements to combat climate change. One of which, the Green Climate Fund (GCF), credits the United States as the top financial contributor. This organization isn’t just about climate change initiative. It also seeks to help other developing nations address issues brought about by their inequalities, such as hazardous pollution levels.

Fight back against the administration at the end of April. Make your voice heard. Two marches are scheduled on back-to-back Saturdays: April 22 (March for Science) and April 29 (People’s Climate Movement). We need all the support we can get to tell the administration that we will not back down.
