“Is Paris good or not for this country?” EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said was the only question the Trump administration asked when evaluating U.S. participation in the Paris Climate Accords.
“The focus remained on whether Paris put us at a disadvantage, and in fact, it did,” Pruitt said. “It put us at an economic disadvantage.”
