Cheers! Clexit! Trump victory may embolden other nations to cancel UN climate deal!

-

Concerns are mounting that Donald Trump’s victory could embolden some fossil fuel-rich countries to try unpicking the historic Paris climate agreement, which came into force last week.

Trump has called global warming a hoax and promised to withdraw the US from the Paris accord.
