Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Monday that Virginia is joining the U.S. Climate Alliance, a coalition of states dedicated to upholding the Paris Climate Agreement. Collectively, these actors remain committed to the Paris accord.

The group gathered at Lafayette Square, General Jackson Statue, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Over the course of the day, Baker's office said the governor was able to connect with Scott and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, one of the founding members of the U.S. Climate Alliance.
