WASHINGTON — Americans for a Better Economy President Donald Ferguson released the following statement Thursday:
We hope today’s announcement is a total and immediate withdrawal of the United States from the United Nations’ Paris climate agreement as a participant, funder and signatory. The U.S. must have no involvement whatsoever with this agreement, starting immediately.
Thousands of Americans for a Better Economy supporters signed our petition at BetterEconomy.org demanding total and immediate withdrawal of the United States from the United Nations’ Paris climate agreement. We hope today’s announcement by President Trump fulfills that demand made by thousands of voting conservatives.
The U.N.’s own figures show the agreement has virtually no impact on global temperatures. it would, however, cost 400,000 Americans their jobs and send electric bills skyrocketing by between 13 and 20 percent.
In fact, the existential threat posed by U.N. climate agreements requires even further steps.
Total and immediate withdrawal from the Paris agreement is only the first step. So long as the U.S. remains in the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, these threats to our jobs, our economy and our personal freedoms will always loom over us.
President Trump and the United States Senate must fully withdraw the U.S. from the U.N.F.C.C.
We urge President Trump submit this request for the Senate’s consideration and vote.
