American Chemical Society on the USA Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement

The American Chemical Society (ACS) has recently expressed its disappointment regarding the plans to withdraw the United Stated of America from the Paris Climate Agreement, and the Society asks that this and future administrations reconsider this decision. The agreement, signed by 197 countries in 2015 and ratified by 147, is needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and mitigate and adapt to climate change. According to ACS Executive Director and CEO Thomas Connelly Jr., “Climate change represents a real and current threat to our economy, health and welfare”.
