Blumenthal Statement on Withdrawal from Paris Agreement

[WASHINGTON, DC] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) issued the following statement on President Trump’s announcement to withdraw from the Paris Agreement.

“No one can fight and win if they abandon the field. America has been made a lesser nation by withdrawing from the Paris Agreement: in jobs and technology, in innovation and leadership, in saving our planet and rolling back the progress we’ve made in combatting climate change. America will regret relinquishing leadership and carelessly abandoning a commitment that would make our country greater. The looming disaster of climate change is now on the shoulders of those in the Trump Administration who have undermined our credibility around the world, and jeopardized the safety and prosperity of future generations.”
