This past June, President Trump fulfilled a campaign promise when he announced that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate accord, and end the implementation of carbon reduction targets set under the Obama administration. What are the implications of this decision on climate policy in the United States? And can local governments and the private sector fill in the void left by the federal government?
Join Rebecca Williams of The Environment Report as she hosts this panel discussion on the impact of the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, and what comes next.
