Johnson Supports President Trump’s Withdrawal from the Paris Agreement

OSHKOSH – U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement praising President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement:

“The benefit of the Paris agreement was suspect from the start. The Copenhagen Consensus used the UN’s own model to estimate the deal would reduce warming by at most 0.3 degrees by 2100. Instead of spending hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars to barely move the needle on global temperatures in a hypothetical distant future, the world’s limited resources would be better spent providing safe drinking water, preventing malaria, and taking other measures to alleviate human suffering in the here and now.”
