Common-sense conservatives are sure to cheer reports that Donald Trump wants to nix his predecessor’s embrace of the Paris Agreement climate change deal.
President-elect Trump is reportedly looking at ways for the U.S. to back out of the landmark climate pact designed to cut carbon emissions around the world, Fox News reported.

A source on Trump’s transition team told Reuters that the team was looking for ways to bypass the procedure to leave the Paris accord, which was agreed upon last December. Trump has previously stated his disbelief in global warming. Other global governments, including China, have expressed their reaffirming support for the deal.
“It was reckless for the Paris agreement to enter into force before the election,” the source told Reuters on Tuesday.
One of the alternatives he said was to withdraw from the 1992 Convention that was a parent to the 2015 Paris accord. It would void U.S. participation in the deal in a year’s time. Trump could also “delete” the U.S. signature from the deal.
