USA Sports Council statement on Paris Accord

"The United States has always been a leader among the progressive countries in the world and, unfortunately for all, today has marked a step back in this direction, however, a majority in this country believe this is a temporary setback. Years and years of hard work among peoples of all cultures, all continents have agreed that this Paris Accord is for the benefit of humankind, and it has nothing to do with politics of any kind. We only have one world to live in and our leaders are responsible for what we do with it and on it."

- USA Sports Council President/CEO, Alfredo La Mont
