In the news this morning, President Trump announced on Thursday that the United States will be pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement.  The Agreement is a pledge  by nearly 200 countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The President called his announcement a campaign promise kept. In a joint statement, Italy, France, and Germany sharply criticized he announcement. The Agreement includes nearly every other nation except for Syria and Nicaragua. President Trump justified his decision, saying it is in the best interest of the United States.  Those agreeing with him say the Agreement was nothing more than a redistribution of wealth and power, and that we are already reducing our carbon emissions without the Agreement.
