Climate change editorial was a breath of fresh air


Your editorial of June 23 — “Trump takes irrational stand on climate change” — written by Enterprise staff Eden Jones, was a breath of fresh air! As she points out, America has now abandoned its role as a global leader on one of the most important issues of our time. Instead, by withdrawing from the Paris Accord, we have joined only two other abstaining countries in the entire world — one wracked by years of vicious civil war and the other who felt the Accord did not go far enough - against almost 200 other countries.

Fortunately, other states, mayors, large and small businesses and communities, including Bozeman, Missoula, Helena and Whitefish have reiterated their commitment to the goal of the Paris agreement to advance clean energy. They want Americans to be leaders and benefit from new energy technologies and the jobs that result.

Thank you, Eden, for your informative and direct column.
