“Leaving the Paris Agreement: When Politics Trump Economics, Science and Reason” – Fossil Free Indices – June 1, 2017

On June 1, 2017 Christopher Ito and Lucy Di Rosa contributed to Fossil Free Indices (FFI) Perspectives a thought piece about President Donald Trump’s announcement that the United States would leave the Paris Climate Agreement.

In the article, the authors juxtapose the Administration’s decision with large investors’ continued “awareness of and action on climate risks.”  The authors “would expect the impacts of today’s decision to be both negative and notable for the US’ role as a global leader and innovator.”

Only two countries in the world – both emerging markets – are not signatories to the agreement:  Nicaragua and Syria.
