President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Accord has been decried from all angles, with critics warning of its immediate impacts on the environment and on the United States’ place as a world leader on climate action.

Mark Mitsui is the President of Portland Community College.
He is also on the steering committee of Second Nature, a non-profit which coordinates the actions and strategies of higher education institutions on climate action and sustainability.

KBOO’s Althea Billings spoke with President Mitsui about the United States withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord and what local level people and institutions can do to combat climate change.
