Gov. Sununu Calls Climate Alliance “quasi-meaningless” “political statement.”

Thank you, Governor Sununu!

(PolitiFact) When [ NH Gov. Chris Sununu] was asked whether he’d sign onto the United States Climate Alliance – a state-level agreement to uphold the objectives of the Paris climate accord developed after the U.S. withdrew from the latter – he bristled.

In an interview with New Hampshire Public Radio, Sununu said the climate alliance is “quasi-meaningless” and “more of just a political statement than anything.”

He specifically called out its founders, the governors of California and New York, saying their motive in championing the U.S. Climate Alliance was to distract from their states’ shortcomings.
