'Trump Poised to Pull U.S. From Paris Climate Accord'

Michael D. Shear and Coral Davenport, reporting for the New York Times:

President Trump is expected to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement, three officials with knowledge of the decision said, making good on a campaign pledge but severely weakening the landmark 2015 climate change accord that committed nearly every nation to take action to curb the warming of the planet.

A senior White House official cautioned that the specific language of the president’s expected announcement was still in flux Wednesday morning. The official said the withdrawal might be accompanied by legal caveats that will shape the impact of Mr. Trump’s decision.

There's a lot of things that the president has done in hist first 130 days to hurt our standing in the world, but if he decides that the US is leaving the Paris Climate Accord, it will be the most harmful thing he could do to the country short of getting us into a war with a nuclear power. This is nothing short of shameful.
