U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, introduced a resolution Thursday with fellow committee members, stating that the United States should continue to exercise global leadership to address climate change and should not retreat from the Paris Climate Agreement.
The resolution comes as reports indicate President Trump is nearing a decision on whether the United States will remain in the Paris Climate Agreement, the largest multilateral cooperative agreement ever reached to address the challenge of global climate change, signed by nearly every country in the world.
Joining Kaine on the resolution are U.S. Senators Ben Cardin, Bob Menendez, Jeanne Shaheen, Chris Coons, Tom Udall, Chris Murphy, Jeff Merkley, Ed Markey, and Cory Booker.
