Trump pulling out of Paris climate accord

Fittingly on an unseasonably cool late May day where I live, comes news that our president is honoring a campaign promise.

From Reuters:
U.S. President Donald Trump has decided to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, the Axios news outlet reported Wednesday, citing two unidentified sources with direct knowledge of the decision.

Trump, who has previously called global warming a hoax, refused to endorse the landmark climate change accord at a summit of the G-7 group of leading industrial nations on Saturday, saying he needed more time to decide. He then tweeted that he would make an announcement this week.
