Lipinski: U.S. Withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement is Not Good for Our Nation

Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-3) released the following statement:

“President Trump’s short-sighted decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement will damage our economy and environment.  The world-uniting pact is not only flexible enough for our nation to meet all our energy needs, but it would help put us in a better leadership position when it comes to creating the energy jobs of tomorrow.  This decision by the President suggests to those at home and abroad that the United States may not be the best place to develop, test, and manufacture new clean energy solutions.  As a member of the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus, I promise to continue to lead the way in Congress on the goals and overall mission of the agreement.  That is what is best for Americans.”
