“The Paris climate agreement threatens to harm American economic growth.”

 

Washington, DC –Club for Growth president David McIntosh, in remarks prepared for delivery today in Chicago at the American Coatings Association’s Spring Leadership Council, will urge the Trump Administration to begin the process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate agreement:

 

“The Paris climate agreement threatens to harm American economic growth,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “President Trump was right during his campaign when he pledged ‘…to cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. global warming programs.’  The Paris Agreement undermines the Trump agenda of restoring economic growth and creating more American jobs.”

 

McIntosh also contends that the agreement will increase litigation over environmental regulations and will hinder the President’s promise to cut regulatory costs on American businesses.
