We'll Always Have Paris

We'll Always Have Paris

There were 195 original signatories to the Paris climate agreement.

Because, hey, it still snows once in awhile!

How to help explain all this to our grandchildren

Here's a nice rowboat if you're looking to navigate rising sea levels.

Share your thoughts via the White House comment line: 202.456.1111.

Urge your city, state, university, or business to commit to maintaining the terms of the Paris agreement. More than 1000 mayors, governors, university and business leaders so far have signed a letter that says We Are Still In.

Oh, and what is EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt hiding? That's the question posed by The New Republic, whose FOIA requests keep getting ignored by the EPA. Never a big believer in climate change, Mr. Pruitt has also refused to make his EPA leadership calendar publicly available. As the former Attorney General of Oklahoma, Pruitt was known for being a mouthpiece of the fossil fuel industry, and his meeting schedule reflected that reputation. Call his EPA office at 202.564.4700 to urge him to disclose who he's meeting with these days.
