Sen. Marshall Continues to Push Back on the Job-Killing Paris Climate Agreement

(Washington, D.C., February 22, 2021) – U.S. Senator Roger Marshall, M.D. joined Senators Marsha Blackburn and Steve Daines to introduce legislation to prohibit U.S. taxpayer dollars from being used to rejoin the job-killing Paris Climate Agreement. He also joined them to introduce a Senate resolution calling on President Joe Biden to submit the Paris Agreement to the Senate for review as required under the Constitution.

“The Paris Agreement is a bad deal for America and a bad deal for Kansas. The deal will kill jobs and raise the price of energy, hurting Americans when many are struggling to stay on their feet. It will punish American energy providers with expensive regulations, dole out U.S. taxpayer money to foreign countries, and let China off the hook for their role as the world’s largest polluter,” said Senator Marshall. “This bill and resolution will ensure not a single dime of American’s hard-earned money goes toward the Paris Climate Agreement.”


In 2019, Heritage Foundation analysts studied what would happen if the United States stayed in the Paris Agreement and found there would be an overall loss of nearly 400,000 jobs, half of which would be in manufacturing. The Heritage analysis also found the Paris Agreement would result in an average total income loss of more than $20,000 for a family of four; and an aggregate GDP loss of over $2.5 trillion.
