Castro in Nevada


During the roundtable discussion, Castro went on to reaffirm a commitment he’s made in the past to rejoin the U.S. into the Paris Climate Accord as part of a broader effort to reduce the country’s carbon footprint. He has also vocally supported the so-called Green New Deal, which provides a series of wide-ranging policy goals meant to deal with climate change.

“What we need to do in addition to rejoining the Paris Climate Accord is invest in reducing carbon emissions and follow the lead of so many local communities and states that have made a pledge to reduce their carbon emissions and make important investments in sustainability.”
