EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt explained how the United States is the world leader when it comes to energy technology that reduces CO2 (carbon dioxide), and added that the country doesn’t need the Paris climate accord for this to continue, during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
Pruitt was on the program to further explain the reasoning behind President Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord.
“Before Paris, this country reduced their CO2 footprint by over 18 percent,” Pruitt explained.
Pruitt continued, “it demonstrates that American innovation, American technology is leading the way with respect to reducing the CO2 footprint, not government mandates.”
“If China and India want to reduce their CO2 footprint, the should learn from us,” Pruitt told Chris Wallace.
Pruitt concluded by explaining how China and India are not trying to reduce their carbon footprints.
