Report: Trump Has Decided To Pull Out Of Obama’s Paris Climate Agreement

It’s great news if real, per Jonathan Swann at Axios

Scoop: Trump is pulling U.S. out of Paris climate deal

President Trump has made his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the decision. Details on how the withdrawal will be executed are being worked out by a small team including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. They’re deciding on whether to initiate a full, formal withdrawal — which could take 3 years — or exit the underlying United Nations climate change treaty, which would be faster but more extreme.

Why this matters: Pulling out of Paris is the biggest thing Trump could do to unravel Obama’s climate legacy. It sends a combative signal to the rest of the world that America doesn’t prioritize climate change and threatens to unravel the ambition of the entire deal.

If true, how will he do it? The NY Times reported this morning that there is a big tug of war between Trump advisors on pulling out. Apparently, the pro-Paris agreement folks lost.

Hopefully, more details will follow. And a tweet from Mr. Trump.

    You mean, we won’t be transferring $100B of our money to other countries to prop up their incompetent corrupt leaders and their clownish antics to pretend to be affected by climate change?
