Trump at odds with G7 on climate

President Donald Trump has declined to join the rest of the G7 countries reaffirming their commitment to cut back on greenhouse gases. He has said he will make a decision next week.

Trump said he wouldn’t support anything that pout US jobs at risk, but it could lead to other risks.

Fox News: Trump declines to join world leaders at G7 in affirming Paris climate accord

President Trump on Saturday at the G-7 Summit in Italy declined to join six other leading nations in their pledge to uphold the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.

The other six members of the G- 7 — Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom — reaffirmed their commitment to the agreement, signed by former President Barack Obama.

The group also said the U.S. is “not in a position to join consensus” on climate change.

Trump should have known this would come up at G7 so should have been prepared to do something other than procrastinate.
