Tribal Renewable Energy Service Companies, Part 2

Dean B. Suagee

In June 2017, not long after President Trump announced the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) adopted a resolution declaring “continued support of the Paris Climate Agreement in furtherance of the sacred responsibility of American Indians and Alaska Natives to protect our resources and ways of life for generations to come.” Res. No. MOH-17-053. In this resolution, the policy of NCAI on climate change is aligned with the states, cities, educational institutions, nongovernmental organizations, and others in the We Are Still In movement. The NCAI resolution recognizes that climate change impacts require action by all levels of government, including tribes, and expresses support for “initiatives intended to reduce greenhouse gas [GHG] emissions and promote climate resiliency.”
