EPA Chief Scott Pruitt Calls for ‘Exit’ of Paris Climate Agreement
by BEN KEW 14 Apr 20174273
The head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Scott Pruitt, has called for America to “exit” the Paris Climate Agreement signed by Barack Obama last November.
In an interview with FOX and Friends, Pruitt said that “Paris [agreement] is something that we need to really look at closely. It’s something we need to exit in my opinion.”
“It’s a bad deal for America,” he continued. “It was an America second, third, or fourth kind of approach. China and India had no obligations under the agreement until 2030. We front-loaded all of our costs.”
On Thursday, Energy Secretary Rick Perry confirmed that his department is conducting a review of all energy policy, adding that it was “the right to do.”

Pruitt opposes the Paris Agreement. Perry opposes the Paris Agreement. The Paris Agreement is bad for America, bad for the entire world.
Time to act on your campaign promise, Mr. President.
UPDATE (EW): Politico reports Trump Officials will meet next Tuesday, to hammer out a decision on what to do about the Paris Agreement.
