'Open mind' on quitting climate accords: Donald Trump

At the end of the two-week UN-sponsored climate talks in the Ochre City, representatives of almost 200 countries agreed to finalise the rules to implement the landmark Paris climate agreement by December 2018.

Back in the United States, though, Trump is not doing much to support such expectations - particularly with his appointment of card-carrying climate denier Myron Ebell as head of the EPA "transition team". Today it's definitely for real and partly caused by humans. At the same time, it became clear that world leaders will remain dedicated to the agreement regardless of USA participation.
