5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty was critical of the decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.  She said American companies are creating jobs every day to meet the world's need for sustainable, affordable energy--but by turning his back on global commitments Esty said President Trump is reversing the growth in our economy.  She says the withdrawl endangers the wellbeing of the ever-larger number of Americans who live in areas that are bearing the costs of erratic weather patterns that are the hallmark of climate change.
