What is the Paris Agreement?

By Annalisa Pardo SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) – Today President Trump announced he will pull the U.S. out of the non-binding parts of the Paris Agreement. The treaty, ratified in November 2016, aims to unify countries across the globe in the fight against climate change. Trump said he is willing to re-enter the treaty under an improved framework, or enter a new agreement that is “fair” to the United States.
