PRESIDENT BIDEN’S EXECUTIVE ORDER RECOMMITTING THE UNITED STATES

TO THE PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD



Senate Majority Leader J. Kalani English (District 7 – Hāna, East and Upcountry Maui, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi and Kahoʻolawe) issued the following statement applauding President Joseph R. Biden’s executive order recommitting the United States to the Paris Climate Accord:


“We applaud President Biden for recommitting the United States to the Paris Climate Accord. In 2017, Hawaiʻi passed my bill - SB559 (Act 032) - making Hawaiʻi the first State in the union to implement the goals of the Paris Climate Accord.


We are vulnerable to the ravages of climate change and Hawaiʻi must act now to protect our environment for future generations. I look forward to continue working with my colleagues to ensure that Hawaiʻi remains a global leader in the fight against climate change.”
