Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) issued the following statement after President Biden pledged the United States to a new sweeping and unattainable Paris Agreement commitment that will destroy thousands of energy jobs and devastate American workers.

“President Biden’s emission targets jeopardize millions of Americans' livelihoods, while empowering China to expand their built-in global advantage. We should focus on plans that reduce global emissions and grow our economy through technology and innovation, not plans that benefit our global adversaries,” said Congressman Armstrong.

Congressman Armstrong joined House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and over 25 members of the House Energy Action Team (HEAT) In opposing these new targets. More information can be found here.
