Washington, D.C.—This morning, the final agreement of COP21, a global climate summit, was reached. Rep. Curbelo (FL-26) released the following statement in response to the summit's conclusion: 

“In order to make significant progress on reducing carbon emissions, it’s imperative that the world’s leading economies reach a consensus on how to proceed. It is particularly important for countries like China and India to cooperate and to honor their commitments. The United States cannot lead alone.

Climate change is an issue of concern for current and future generations with potentially serious consequences for many parts of the world like South Florida if left unaddressed. I am pleased that so many nations were committed to the success of this critical dialogue, and I look forward to reviewing the proposal that has been negotiated.”
