Maintaining U.S. leadership on climate change is good for jobs, growth, & competitiveness:

“Hundreds of U.S. companies – large and small – have declared their support for continuing U.S. leadership on climate change and the Paris Agreement. These companies recognize that proactively addressing climate change will be a driver of innovation, economic growth and prosperity. Indeed, the renewable energy sector in the United States now employs more workers than the fossil fuel industry, and the rate of job growth in the renewables sector is four times that of the rest of the U.S. economy. Maintaining U.S. leadership on climate is good for jobs, growth and competitiveness. State and local governments increasingly recognize these benefits and continue to support and invest in a clean energy future. Withdrawing from the Paris Agreement sends precisely the wrong signals to U.S. companies and places the United States at a competitive disadvantage.
