Breitbart discusses CEI's ad campaign urging Trump to exit the Paris Climate Agreement with Myron Ebell.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) launched an ad campaign urging President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

CEI will run nearly 70 television spots on CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC for three days before President Trump travels overseas on Friday.

The think tank argued during the last year that the Paris climate agreement would devastate the American economy and impose higher energy prices on millions of Americans. CEI argues that rather than following in the footsteps of President Obama, President Trump should declare the Paris agreement a treaty and have the Senate reject the climate agreement.

Myron Ebell, director of CEI’s Center for Energy and Environment, stated:

Staying in Paris threatens the President’s energy agenda, which is a key part of his plan to increase economic growth.
