Climate: We’ll be judged by company we keep

Re: “Trump on Paris climate pact: ‘We are getting out,’” (TNT, 6/2).

Our president has just made a mistake of historic proportions. That the leader of the free world would leave a pack of 195 nations and join the likes of Syria and Nicaragua in denying the mandate for all countries to work to mitigate global climate change is a historic display of ignorance.

With only 4 percent of the world’s population, and yet producing one third of global greenhouse gases, the U.S. has been changed from a global climate leader into a global climate deadbeat.

I fear that our grandchildren will look back at this time and be stunned how a world leader could be so divorced from both morality and scientific reality.
