With indications that the new administration plans to dismantle the Paris climate agreement, an accord that was 20 years in the making, many of us are hoping the president-elect will come to understand that backing off from this agreement is not in the best interest of our country for many reasons, including those of economic and political persuasion.
Our country would not only slip in leadership stature in the eyes of the world; we would also be letting down our next generation. For once, I’m hoping that with Trump’s evident ambivalence and flip-flopping, the climate change coin lands “heads up.” Because turning tails on this issue is not an option.
