    Whereas the international community must work to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as prepare for the effects of climate change;

    Whereas the United States plays an indispensable role in global leadership;

    Whereas the Paris Agreement sets goals that are not only achievable but necessary in order to move towards a pathway to limit temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius; and

    Whereas the United States is stronger when joining with global efforts to address climate change: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That Congress reaffirms its commitment to the Paris Agreement and that the United States is still in and should not withdraw.
