US President Trump once again denounced the "unfair, ineffective, and very, very expensive" Paris climate accord, during a speech on "America's environmental leadership." Trump announced in June 2017 that the United States was pulling out of the Paris agreement, concluded in 2015 with almost every nation on the planet. The pact aims to limit global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
