Rep. Krueger-Braneky seeks to keep PA subject to Paris Climate Accord

June 1st of this year President Donald J. Trump announced his plan to withdrawal the United States from the Paris Climate Accord.

The Paris Climate Accord was a global coalition created in December of 2015 to promote the reality of global climate change and implement a plan to reduce gas emissions 26 percent-28 percent from the 2005 levels. 196 nations signed the pact to reduce emissions and fund approximately $100 billion into developing nations so they could also reduce emissions.

After the withdrawal, Pres. Trump did say he would remain in negotiations for the deal, but that it was fiscally irresponsible for the United States to remain in the deal.
