Wyoming delegates react to US withdrawal from Paris agreement

WYOMING – Legislative leaders from Wyoming were in accord with President Donald Trump’s decision today to pull out of the Paris Climate agreement.

“I applaud President Trump for making the decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. The choice by the former Administration to join the agreement without any input from Congress was disingenuous and irresponsible. The Constitution requires the Senate to advise and consent to any treaty made by the president,” US Sen. Mike Enzi said. “The Paris agreement demanded too much from our country while letting others, such as China and India, off the hook for years. It was a bad deal for America. I look forward to working with the Trump Administration to continue positive policy reforms that support American energy and our economy.”

Rep. Liz Cheney added, “I strongly support President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. This agreement imposed emissions standards that would have devastated America’s fossil fuel industry with no measurable impact on the climate. The agreement was based on flawed science and its purpose was to kill our coal industry. President Trump was right to pull out of this damaging agreement.”
