WashU Experts on the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Agreement

The action will take effect in one year. Experts from Washington University in St. Louis expressed dismay that the U.S. government is forgoing a critical leadership role in addressing climate change, and offered a few suggestions on how to move forward.
