Texas RRC - Commissioner Christian Applauds President Trump for Removing U.S. from Paris Climate Accords | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
“The Obama Administration entered the United States into a lopsided agreement which would require our nation to drastically reduce carbon emissions -- killing jobs, harming our economy, and increasing energy costs for consumers – while allowing other nations like Russia and China to increase emissions for the foreseeable future,” said Commissioner Christian. 

“By withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accords, Trump has demonstrated his continued commitment to putting America first and prioritizing jobs for middle-class Americans,” continued Christian. “It is refreshing to have an administration that avoids basing regulatory decisions on politically-driven rhetoric disguised as science. As we have shown in Texas, both the economy and environment prosper when regulations are consistent, predictable, and based on proven, sound science.”
