G7 Summit outcome shows Trump isolated on climate change - Greenpeace

Press release - 27 May, 2017
Taormina, Sicily, 27 May 2017 - In response to the outcome of the G7 Summit in Taormina, Sicily - where all members except the US reaffirmed their strong commitment to swiftly implement the Paris Climate Agreement - Jennifer Morgan, Greenpeace International Executive Director, said:

“Europe, Canada and Japan made a stand today, revealing again how far Trump is out of step with the rest of the world on climate change. The G7 outcome reconfirms that the clean energy transformation is unstoppable and supported by not only governments, but by society more broadly.

“Leaders must now keep resolve and ensure that the G20 signals even greater climate ambition. President Trump should now return to Washington and make the right decision, take climate change seriously and take action with the rest of the world.”
