Trump Hears Multiple Reasons to Leave Paris Climate Accord, Few to Remain

The Washington Times discusses withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Treaty with Chris Horner. 

“The argument that we can simply renegotiate the Paris Climate Treaty is false. That’s not an option under the deal. The agreement’s language in Article 4 is clear and deliberate.
