Reports from the United States indicate that President Donald Trump’s administration is poised to announce the country’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate agreement. Various US media, quoting senior officials, say the White House will make the announcement, once details of the withdrawal process have been worked out. Trump tweeted about an hour ago that he will announce his decision over the next few days. The decision will put the US in a league with Syria and Nicaragua as the world’s only non-participants in the landmark Paris Climate Agreement.
