NightSide – U.S. Withdraws From Paris Climate Accord

BOSTON (CBS) – Earlier today, President Trump announced that the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, an agreement signed by almost two hundred nations around the world. By rejecting the agreement, the United States joins Syria and Nicaragua as the only countries to choose not to participate. President Trump said he made the decision with the economic interests of Americans in mind, stating that he was elected to represent the citizens of “Pittsburgh, not Paris”. Do you think withdrawing from the agreement is the right move? Should job creation take precedence over protecting the environment? Can we do both?
