President Donald Trump has reportedly made the decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord, according to Axios.
The details of exactly how the U.S. will exit the accord are still being worked out by a small team that includes EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. They're reportedly trying to figure out whether or not to trigger a full withdrawal (a three-year process) or to exit the underlying U.N. treaty on climate change (a much quicker but more extreme option).
Pulling out of the Paris climate accord would be the most intense way that Donald Trump could undo former President Barack Obama's legacy on climate change. Exiting the deal would send a message to the rest of the world that the United States does not take the issue of climate change seriously.
The only two countries that don't support the deal as of right now are Nicaragua and Syria.
