Trump Leans Toward Unwinding Climate Commitment

President Trump is leaning towards withdrawing from the 2015 Paris climate accord, though the decision is not final as of yet. Under the non-binding accord, 190 countries committed to cutting greenhouse-gas emissions in order to reduce increases in global temperatures. The U.S. has pledged to cut emissions by 26% to 28% by 2025 and is the second largest emitter behind China. Administration officials that support leaving the accord say that it will hinder America’s economic prospects. Many business leaders, as well as some administration officials, have urged President Trump not to withdraw.
