Climate Accord and the Clean Power Plan
On the day President Trump announced the U.S. exit from the Paris Agreement,
the Nicholas Institute's Tim Profeta and Brian Murray got together to discuss the historic climate accord,
starting with the science that underlies it. Exiting the agreement, they said, will undermine the ability of the United States to shape solutions to climate change. In a joint statement with Jeffrey Vincent of the Nicholas School of the Environment and Kelly Brownell of the Sanford School of Public Policy, they said "The president's decision runs counter to prodigious evidence on the science and economics of climate change."
