This article discussed The Paris Climate Accord international agreement and how members of Trump's administration do or do not agree with him that the U.S needs to pull out of this agreement. It is pretty unclear what trump is going to do at this point but, there are a lot of questions revolving around his team because it is split between supporters of the deal and climate deniers/nationalist who want out. I like that this article touches on how the Paris Deal does nothing to us because like we've discussed in class, it has no enforcement, it is not law. So, it makes no sense to withdraw. It is simply a matter of reputation that would cause Trump to withdraw or because climate deniers who want out have manipulated him to do so. It is going to be interesting to see which side wins him over and how Trump's decisions affects the globe when it comes to fighting climate change.
