“Trump is known to like walls. Maybe a wall of carbon tariffs around the US is a solution he will understand”

— Jeremy Wates, Secretary General of the European Environmental Bureau.

After multiple delays, and the building up of a twisted reality television-like suspense, Donald Trump has finally announced that he will take America out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Among all the fluster of his presidency, this may be one of Trump’s most consequential decisions, and the one with the most long-lasting negative, if not disastrous, impacts. In response, it is time the global community consider boycotting America.
