On July 2, CEI published a coalition letter it coordinated and sent President Donald Trump urging his Administration to Reject the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. The letter began:
The undersigned free market, conservative, consumer, and sound science organizations urge you to reject the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. This 2016 United Nations treaty negotiated by the Obama Administration would impose restrictions on production of the affordable refrigerants currently used in most types of air conditioning and refrigeration units and necessitate their likely replacement with more expensive alternatives. The result would be higher costs for households, motorists, and businesses that rely on air conditioning and refrigeration.
Approximately 25 free-market oriented groups signed onto the letter.
