Trump Has Done More Than Pull Out of Paris

There’s new evidence that President Donald Trump has already made the planet hotter.

Since taking office, Trump has done something substantively worse for the climate than pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement on climate change: He has slashed at a large body of climate-focused rules issued by President Obama.

With the rules no longer in force and unlikely to be replaced, companies are now planning to emit more greenhouse gases, trapping heat in the atmosphere and warming the globe.

As such, the United States will fall far short of its pollution-reduction goals under the Paris Agreement on climate change, according to a new report from the Rhodium Group, a private market-research firm.
