(Which is why 350 Seattle is working to change the standard trade model.)

Past trade deals, including Trump’s NAFTA 2.0, have ignored the climate crisis by failing to include climate standards, allowing lawsuits by fossil fuel companies against governments, and by locking in fossil fuel dependency. Over the course of 2020 and beyond, we plan to be working to promote a new trade model through Congressional legislation — one that will strengthen the rights of workers, include climate standards, and discourage trade in products that have been made with a high carbon footprint.
