Rep. Costello Statement on Paris Agreement

June 1, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Rep. Ryan Costello (PA-06) issued the following statement regarding the Administration’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement:

“I am disappointed by the Administration’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. This decision is a setback to sustainable energy innovation across our country and forfeits an opportunity for the United States to lead on an issue of economic and environmental significance. While the Paris Agreement has its flaws, the solution should not be to pack up, walk away, and surrender our position of influence. The solution should be to work with our partners and improve this initiative while championing critical protections for American families and businesses.  As a member of the Climate Solutions Caucus, I am committed to working with my colleagues to encourage greater American ingenuity, innovation, and leadership to reduce carbon emissions and protect our environment.”
