Rep. Lauren Boebert introduces bill to block U.S. from re-entering the Paris Agreement

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KRDO) -- On Thursday, Republican Representative Lauren Boebert introduced her first three bills as a member of Congress, including the Paris Agreement Constitutional Treaty Act, which would prevent the U.S. from re-entering the Paris Agreement until approved by the Senate.

Boebert released the following statement following the introduction of the bill:

"My bill prohibits Congress from spending a single penny on the Paris Agreement until this treaty is ratified by the United States Senate. Joe Biden took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. If he wants to keep it, he must transmit the job-killing Paris Agreement to the U.S. Senate for ratification. Unilaterally entering the Paris Agreement was wrong in 2016 and its wrong now. Responsible energy production supports more than 230,000 Colorado jobs. The Paris Agreement puts these jobs at risk and will increase energy costs. $4 per gallon gasoline, here we go again!"  

Rep. Lauren Boebert

If passed, the bill would prevent Congress from moving forward until the Senate "first adopts a resolution of advice and consent to ratification" of the agreement.

This includes blocking any U.S. funds that would go towards the Paris Agreement.

Former President Donald Trump announced the U.S. was withdrawing from the agreement in June of 2017, and officially withdrew on Nov. 4, 2020, according to ABC News.

After being sworn in Wednesday, President Joe Biden announced plans to re-enter the Paris Climate Accord, which would be implemented in 30 days.

  1. Bimbo-ert. Oh Honey. You should have stayed in high school. You wrote a paper! And it’s gonna get an “F”.

  2. This dumb idiot needs to get the hell out of congress. Not only is she a waster as a politician and Trump a@@ kisser, she is a waste as a human being. No soul.

    1. Hopefully they will find she played a part in assisting the insurrection (of which she is already suspected of doing), and will be indicted for her part in it.

      1. Hopefully, from your lips…….. She is just……ugh. She really angers me. I would do so much better with a platform like that.

      2. If that does happen then we also need to take a look at the politicians who supported the riots and destruction around the country. Politicians who encouraged and affirmed the CHOP zone where many were killed and shot. Billions of damage done.
        There is no evidence that she directly incited the riot. You need to brush up on your law. You can’t be guilty by association, just because she is a republican. You can’t be guilty of a riot by objecting to the certification of the vote. I trust when the DOJ and the FBI have both said they are not investigating her. At no point did any lawmaker or the president say to storm the capitol and take over.
        Again you allow your hate to blind you to the facts. The lock all of them up attitude is ignorant.
        Now if they come out and an investigation shows evidence of direct responsibility, not conjecture or conspiracy theories, then allow due process to happen. You would want the same if it was you. Judge, Jury and executioner by media and social media should not be tolerated. The justice system has that responsibility. Remember all the riots based on hear say and bias opinions in Ferguson, MO. Then to find out after the investigation none of it was true. But they burned down half the city over it and caused billions of damage to private citizens. That is flat out wrong.

  3. If any of you people actually understood what the Paris agreement will actually do to America your dum ask comments might actually hold water. At least she is smart enough to understand all it actually does is handcuff the American economy while allowing other countries to pollute as much as they want. The biggest polluters (Russia and China) are not even in the accord. They can just manufacture and pollute as much as they want while more American jobs are lost. The members are “alloted” pollution so while they get to grow their economies, the energy infrastructure of America is strangled along with the economy.

    1. So rather than attempting to deal with this world-wide problem with majority of the inhabitants of the world being involved to lessen the pollution for all our benefits, we should instead use you approach?
      Because your approach sounds similar to blaming your own stench of not showering on 2 other kids that haven’t showered since at least as long as you have if not longer. So why should you wash yourself, the other 2 stinky kids in class don’t.

      1. The answer is, because it is the right thing to do and we should simply do it, regardless if someone is watching us or not.

  4. Representative Boebert, one of your biggest giveaways is your tone and inflection. When you claim you speak for your constituents as you are addressing your fellow representatives you are all fire and brimstone, anger and rage. But when you come back to your constituents you all of a sudden realize the majority your constituents do not agree with how you are representing us so you attempt to be calm and dismissive about the protesters, your constituents, that are actively speaking out against you and your actions. You ran on a platform that failed, because your platform dissolved when Trump was defeated, fairly and honestly with no evidence to the contrary. You speak of not embracing conspiracy theories, but you have already been caught on record supporting QAnon since may of 2020, which you later had to recant in October 2020 because it was becoming widely known how much of a crazy conspiracy group this was, but you never stopped following their ideology. Representative Boebert, you were known for not following law and order when you were a private citizen, will you continue this path of self-service and only serve those closest to you or will you do your actual civic job and duty and listen and follow the will of all of your constituents, or will you only follow the ones that agree with your methodology?

    1. Just curious. How do you think she got elected? Was it because there were no other candidates? Or did her message speak to voters and then they subsequently voted for her?

      1. At the time when she was running, she utilized the uncertain stability of the region that has been knowingly red for a long time. Coupled with the democratic runner that appeared very socialist to further drive the parties to vote party line. As the evidence shows. She did speak to the fears of the Republican party, and legally won her election by perpetuating the same unfounded accusations and rhetoric Trump pushed. Then on Jan. 6, she lost a lot of them with how she handled herself and her lack of tact and professionalism at the Capital. This too is indirectly shown with the 38% approval rating Trump received after Jan. 6. How does this corelate to her? She has no agenda that is her own original thought, she is only a parrot that learned to speak from Trump. As with her most recent attempt to pass a bill to block the US from re-entering the Paris Climate Accord, simply because she believes that keeping big oil alive is better for the US than dealing with the worlds problem of attempting to lessen climate change.

        1. Additionally we can look at her twitter account and see what she tweeted to the world to start the day of Jan. 6 2021. ”

          Today is 1776.— Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) January 6, 2021

          or her some of the others that day, Why would she say this?

          We were locked in the House Chambers.— Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) January 6, 2021

          In the middle of this situation, why would anyone that is not giving instructions to someone put this very specific statement out to the world, and specifically, why did she only mention the speaker?

          The Speaker has been removed from the chambers.— Lauren Boebert (@laurenboebert) January 6, 2021

          Twitter, who needs to do investigations when most criminals are too ignorant that they are providing everyone with all the Probable Cause they need.

      2. She got elected because there wasn’t anyone any better than her. Same way Frump got elected.

  5. @ntd66 I agree bimbo ran against that old lady idiot and trump ran against Hillary who didn[t relate to anybody and assumed she could take the working people states without even showing up
