U.S. To Leave Paris Climate Change Agreement

Axios news outlet citing three sources with direct knowledge reported on Saturday that President Donald Trump has told “confidants” that he plans to leave the Paris climate change agreement.

The report said that among those confidants include Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environment Protection Agency. Another source told Reuters that several meetings were planned with chief executives of energy companies and big corporations about the climate change agreement before Trump’s anticipated announcement later in the week.

Trump tweeted during the final day of a G7 summit in Italy on Saturday that: “I will make my final decision on the Paris Accord next week!”

Leaders of other nations such as Germany, France, Italy, Canada and Japan mounted concerted pressure on Trump to honor the 2015 Paris Agreement on curbing carbon emissions. But Trump has said in the past, especially during the campaign, that global warming was a hoax.

Trump’s seeming reluctance to embrace the Paris climate change agreement annoyed German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who called the entire discussion about it “very difficult, if not to say very dissatisfying.” Merkel also told reporters that “there are no indications whether the United States will stay in the Paris Agreement or not.”
