    An update to the thread title would be nice - maybe change it to "Trump could shortcut withdrawal from Paris Agreement by withdrawing from 1992 agreement".

    The current thread title suggests that Trump has already completed the act (not true, both in time, and in terms of making a decision to follow the course of action).

    in the words of obama, elections have consequences. you do realize that obama cannot enter into treaties like this without the consent of the senate, which never happened so the US is not legally bound to this agreement he entered into.

    This has been reported around the world.

    There aren't many places it has gone down well.
