This week, over on the Election Central Web site, the main story explains how the United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords may not necessarily change the nation’s impact on the environment.

On June 1, President Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris Climate Accord, a move which caused concern from Americans and from others around the globe. The agreement has been agreed upon by most all of the major industrial and developing nations in the world. Nicaragua and Syria are the only other nations not to sign on to this climate agreement. Also the United States is the only nation to remove itself from the terms of the agreement. However, many U.S. governors and mayors aren’t allowing this to deter them from their goal of taking important action to slow global warming.
