Inhofe Disappointed in Biden Executive Action to Rejoin Paris Climate AgreementThu, 21 Jan 2021 10:07:14 CST
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe today expressed his disapproval of President Biden’s executive action to rejoin the harmful Paris Climate Agreement.
“The Paris Climate Agreement was a bad deal when it was signed under then-Vice President Biden and it is a mistake for President Biden to rejoin today. The agreement has not been modified - the United States would be responsible for the majority of reductions and the leading polluters, China and India, largely unaccountable - putting our economic growth at a severe disadvantage.
“We saw over the last four years how light touch regulations led to the United States leading the world in reducing CO2 emissions further proof that American businesses didn’t need to endure the effects of heavy-handed environmental regulations during the Obama administration. I am disappointed by the precedent set today by the Biden Administration with the executive action to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. We shouldn’t go back to bad deals out of spite - and the Paris Climate Agreement is clearly a bad deal.”
