WASHINGTON, D.C., June 1, 2017

Today, President Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:

“The Paris Agreement has always been a political sideshow to America’s energy renaissance and its contributions to reducing emissions through innovation. We should not be taking any form of energy off the table, we should be innovating. We should be finding new ways to harness our energy potential to create an even more abundant, affordable, efficient and diverse supply. That is how America has led and will continue to lead the world to greater prosperity.

Cantwell Statement On Trump Administration’s Decision To Withdraw From The Paris Climate Agreement

Washington, D.C. – Today, Ranking Member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) made the following statement on President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement:

“This is a sad day for America. Donald Trump just quit the race to become the world’s clean energy superpower and greatly diminished us in the eyes of our allies.

It now falls to our states and local communities to redouble our efforts to reduce emissions and find innovative ways to fight climate change. We all must show leadership now because our current President won’t.”
