Tim Cook and other CEOS united to combat climate change

The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, and a group of other CEOS, including Sundar Pichai of Google and Satya Nadella of Microsoft, have jointly signed a letter to urge the administration to Trump to keep the United States a member of the Paris agreement.

The terms of the Paris agreement aims to combat climate change and keeping the global temperature rises this century to well below 2° C above pre-industrial levels. The United States has been one of the more than 190 countries to agree to support the agreement in Paris in 2015, under the Obama administration, but the administration Trump is about to come out formally from the agreement due to economic concerns.

Cook and other ceos who signed the letter believe that the terms of the Paris agreement might actually give a boost to the economy.

“Stay in the Paris agreement will strengthen our competitiveness in global markets, positioning the United States to guide the development of new technologies to support the transition, provide for our employees and communities, and create jobs and businesses built to last”, says the letter.

“The promise of the Agreement in Paris is one of a world that is just and prosperous. We urge the United States to join with us to stay.”

The letter was prepared by the AFL-CIO, the largest federation of unions in the United States, which represents more than 12.5 million workers in the country. For more details, visit the Web site United For The Paris Agreement.

Humanity has never faced a greater or more urgent threat than climate change — and it's one we must face together. Apple will continue our work to leave the planet better than we found it and to make the tools that encourage others to do the same. https://t.co/26sTnleNep
