St. Paul, Minn. – Macalester College President Brian Rosenberg has joined many college and university presidents in signing the “We Are Still In” statement, declaring their continued support of the Paris Climate Accord, in light of President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the accord.

The group, which also consists of major business leaders, and local and national politicians, is submitting a plan to the United Nations that would continue to meet the environmental goals of the agreement. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is coordinating the effort.

In December 2015 when the original accord was adopted, Environmental Studies professor Roopali Phadke and several Macalester students were in Paris to witness the event.
