AP warmists try to reassure themselves: ‘Trump rollback of Obama climate agenda may prove challenging’

-

Trump said during the campaign he would “cancel” the Paris agreement to make global reductions in carbon emissions that Obama signed in December.

The agreement was not a treaty and was not approved by the Republican-controlled Senate, and legal experts agree that as president Trump would have the authority to walk away.
