Attorney General Stein Stands Up for Climate Action

Release date: 6/5/2017

Attorney General Josh Stein today joined Gov. Roy Cooper, three mayors, two universities and more than 10 businesses in North Carolina, as well as more than 1,000 leaders from around the nation, in an open letter to the international community and parties to the Paris Agreement that reaffirmed their support for climate action.
 
“Regardless of what happens at the federal executive branch, nothing will stop me from upholding my oath to the North Carolina constitution and its declaration “to control and limit pollution of our air and water,” said Attorney General Stein. “I am encouraged and inspired by the groundswell of support for climate action all across our state and nation. Now is the time to support a clean energy future with good paying jobs, healthier people and a more secure nation.”
