U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that the United States will no longer participate in the 2015 Paris climate agreement, the landmark United Nations treaty that many of us worked so hard to achieve. Trump is making a mistake that will have grave repercussions for his own country, and for the world.More broadly, Trump has diminished America itself, and abdicated its global leadership role.Other parties to the Paris agreement have responded to Trump's decision with strength, thus proving the resilience of the agreement itself. The rest of the world will be sad to see an America that has been left behind, owing to Trump's decision. By placing America in the company of the only two countries that have not joined the Paris agreement – Syria and Nicaragua – Trump's decision is completely at odds with the current global atmosphere of cooperation.Still, Trump cannot take all of America with him.
