US officially leaves Paris climate agreement

The United States left the Paris accord, becoming the first country to ever withdraw from an international climate change pact.

The result of the current Presidential election will decide the direction of the US climate agenda, if Biden wins he will likely re-join the agreement.

If Trump continues as President, the worlds second largest carbon emitter will not be part of a global effort to combat climate change.

Donald Trump announced three years ago that the US would leave the Paris agreement.
