If elected president this fall, Democrat Joe Biden will rejoin the Paris Accords for climate, New Mexico Gov Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) said during her address to the Democratic National Convention.

The United States joined the Paris Accords for climate during the Obama administration, only for Donald Trump to pull the nation out of the global agreement after becoming president.

“I’m proud that New Mexico has shown what climate leadership looks like, while the Trump administration has been eliminating environmental protections, we’ve expanded them,” the governor said. “We’ve been taking on polluters and held them accountable. We committed to an exciting renewable energy future, including right here in the heart of northern New Mexico. We’re laying a road map for what America can and should look like in the 21st century. An America where we can lead again.

“Where we provide meaningful opportunities for workers and families to thrive and build better lives,” she added. “As president, Joe Biden will rejoin the international climate agreement, and the United States will once again lead on this critical issue.”
