“The debate over the Paris accord is an economic debate,” the Secretary of Commerce said following President Trump’s announcement.
Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross said the discussion to pull out of the Paris climate accord is not about science, but rather an economic one, during an interview following President Trump’s announcement that the United States will be pulling out of the accord on Thursday.
“The debate over the Paris accord is not a debate over science. The debate over the Paris accord is an economic debate,” Ross declared.
Ross continued, “the president, made clear we are already far ahead of other countries in terms of CO2 reduction and how can it be an effective deal if it lets China and India, two of the major polluters, keep increasing their pollution for another decade or two?”
“That doesn’t sound to me like a climate accord. It simply sounds like a transfer of wealth from the United States to other countries,” Ross concluded.
