Climate scientists have taken issue with some of the research used by President Trump to bolster his case for withdrawal from the Paris agreement.

The President argued that even if the accord was fully implemented it would only have a “tiny, tiny” impact.

But researchers have told BBC News that the President was “cherry picking in the extreme” in his use of the facts.

They say that the Paris deal could make the difference between tolerable and dangerous levels of warming.

While much of his statement on withdrawal was concerned with the negative economic impact of being part of the Paris agreement, the President also mentioned the negligible impact that the deal would have on temperatures.
