From the Office of Buffalo, New York area Congressman Brian Higgins

A Statement by Congressman Brian Higgins on President Trump’s Withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord –
“For decades, the United States set the world’s public policy standard on critical environmental issues. Unfortunately, that tradition ends today.
“Today’s (June 1st) decision to back away from the Paris Climate Accord — a pledge joined by more than 190 countries to reduce emissions toward the goal of cleaner air and a healthy planet — does not demonstrate the leadership that is characteristic of America, nor does it protect the health and safety of people today, or those for generations to come.
“This is a sad chapter in the history of American public policy, and one that thoughtful public officials must commit to reverse.”
