Congressman Charlie Crist (D-St. Petersburg) released the following statement on reports that President Trump is expected to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord: 

“The Paris Climate Accord is a historic and shared commitment between nearly 200 countries to protect our environment and our future,” said Crist. “It would be extremely disappointing and damaging for the U.S. to walk away from this commitment and surrender America’s leadership in climate stewardship. Withdrawal would cause lasting damage to our international relationships, global environment, and national economy. In my home state of Florida, the environment is our economy and we feel the effects of climate change on a daily basis. We must renew and strengthen these commitments, not turn our back on them. A decision to withdraw from the Accord would be short-sighted, irresponsible, and immoral.”
