Trump Kicks Off Formal Process Of Pulling U.S. Out Of Paris Climate Accords

The decision could go into effect one day after the 2020 election.

The Trump administration on Monday began the formal process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris agreement, the historic global deal to cut climate-changing emissions. 

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the move in a post to Twitter, saying “the U.S. is proud of our record as a world leader in reducing all emissions, fostering resilience, growing our economy, and ensuring energy for our citizens.” U.S. carbon emissions rose sharply in 2018 ― a spike that the administration has largely ignored but which Environmental Protection Agency chief Andrew Wheeler attributed to “an uptick in manufacturing and industrial output” triggered by President Donald Trump’s policies.
