13. "What an embarrassing sight. History will remember." — Shannon Gotto

14. "Rather than supporting a sustainable future for humanity, growing our economy and creating jobs, President Trump is putting the United States on the wrong side of history." — Waterkeeper Alliance Executive Director Marc Yaggi

15. Trump's endless crusade to cripple any efforts to protect people and the planet from industrial pollution is the kind of stuff only seen from zealots who close their eyes to science and common sense. — Environmental Working Group's President Ken Cook

16. "We will harness public outrage into meaningful on-the-ground action. By working at the local and regional level, communities can organize for powerful and lasting change, forcing elected officials to choose a side: that of Trump and his fossil fuel billionaire cabinet, or that of the people fighting for a stable climate and an economy that works for everyone." 350.org Executive Director May Boeve

17. "Generations from now, Americans will look back at Donald Trump's decision to leave the Paris agreement as one of the most ignorant and dangerous actions ever taken by any president." — Sierra Club's Executive Director Michael Brune

22. "With this reckless rejection of international climate cooperation, the administration took a giant step toward turning our country into a rogue nation. Most Americans want global action against global warming, but Trump's foreign policy seems aimed strictly at appeasing coal companies and the oil industry." — Center for Biological Diversity's Executive Director Kierán Suckling
