Trump’s decision will ‘reduce support’ for US policies

The United States will “miss the wave” of global innovation emerging to tackle climate change, following president Trump’s decision to abandon the Paris agreement, says one of Australia’s top climate policy advisers.

Mark Howden, director of the Australian National University climate change institute in Canberra warned that Trump’s failure “to play a constructive and progressive role” in the global climate treaty will have economic and political consequences for the US.

In a brief ANU statement responding to Trump’s decision, Howden said that “obstructive behaviour in the climate change negotiation arena is likely to reduce support for other key US agendas from key diplomatic blocs.”
