ACCCE Supports President Trump for Action on Paris Climate Treaty
June 1, 2017
WASHINGTON— The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) supports President Trump pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement.
“We support President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris agreement. The previous administration volunteered to meet one of the most stringent goals of any country in the world, while many other countries do far less to reduce their emissions,” said ACCCE President and CEO Paul Bailey. “Meeting President Obama’s goal would have led to more regulations, higher energy prices, and dependence on less reliable energy sources.”
The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is a partnership of industries involved in producing electricity from coal. Coal, an affordable and reliable energy resource, provides one-third of our nation’s electricity.
