Breaking down Trump’s post-NATO hot spots – POLITICO (And Climate)

As Trump sucked up oxygen at the NATO proceedings in London, much of the world’s policy elite (from 195 countries) was in Madrid, Spain, working out how to implement the Paris Climate Agreement, which Trump has abandoned.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even jetted to Madrid to tell the world that the United States hasn’t left the Paris deal, only its federal government. Indeed, many American states and mayors raced to boost their own climate action plans after Trump announced his intention to leave the Paris agreement more than two years ago.

Still, Trump continues to be a pariah among climate officials on the world stage, the only major world leader not committed to implementing the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
