Exiting Paris Agreement Threatens National Security & Stymies Economic Growth

In response to President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) issued the following statement

By - Jun 1st, 2017 03:37 pm

“President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord – a landmark multinational agreement between 195 nations –  is the latest salvo from an administration known for its anti-science and anti-environment agenda. This misguided action signifies a direct threat to our national security, our public health, and our country’s economic growth.

“This historic pact not only strengthens the green economy, but it also encourages innovation from companies large and small. Although he claims to be pro-business, President Trump’s blatant disregard for this significant accord ignores the leadership shown by a diverse contingent of Fortune 500 companies like Apple, General Mills, and General Electric – all of whom support our continued membership in the agreement.

“Today’s ill-advised action by the president demonstrates his insistence on putting the wishes of his fringe supporters above all else. The Paris accord represents a strong commitment to securing our planet for future generations. I call on all Americans to speak out against such a dangerous move and encourage the president to reconsider this careless decision.”

    So Gwen, why are you in Congress if our Representatives are not allowed to vote on laws and Treaties. Why were Senators Baldwin and Johnson not allowed to vote for us on this Paris Treaty. We did not send you to Congress to just collect pay checks. So, you would rather have Brussels and Paris representing Wisconsin.

    “This misguided action signifies a direct threat to our national security, our public health, and our country’s economic growth.” Nothing in this quote is backed up in the press release.

    You hit the nail on the head, Gwen, when you said that Trump “put the wishes of his fringe supporters above all else.” It has been said by people who know a great deal more than Trump on the consequences of U.S.A. action in the world that withdrawal from the Paris Accord may be the worst action on our part since W’s 2003 “pre-emptive invasion of Iraq.
