Stop Sabotaging International Efforts To Act On Climate Change

The current administration already broke faith with 194 other countries by pulling the United States out of its commitment to the Paris climate agreement. Syria, because of the devastation in their country, is the only other nation not a part of the agreement.  Originally Nicaragua was not a signer, but they have recently come on board.  However, senior Trump officials continue to obstruct progress for the rest of the world at meetings on the agreement with other international leaders.

Backed by fossil-fuel billionaires, Trump officials keep going to the meetings to represent the interests of big polluters. Since Trump withdrew the United States from the agreement, it's only fair that the U.S. also stop trying to sabotage international meetings about implementation. 

Below is a link for a petition put forth by Climate Hawks Vote calling on Trump and Exxon CEO-turned Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to stop sabotaging international efforts to act on climate change.
