Senator Tom Udall’s Statement on U.S.-China Climate Agreement

Today, U.S. Senator Tom Udall released the following statement on the historic climate agreement between the United States and China:

“New Mexicans are seeing firsthand the devastating impacts of global warming, including drought, water scarcity, and more serious wildfires. That’s one of the reasons I’ve been pushing for a “do it all, do it right” plan to develop a strong clean energy sector that will cut pollution and create well-paying jobs in New Mexico and across the country. But the United States can’t do this alone — all nations must work together as partners to combat this common problem. So this historic agreement between the United States and China is good for New Mexico, the country, and the global community. We need strong leadership and a robust effort around the world to reverse these climate trends, and I hope this deal will be a game changer that spurs global cooperation.”
