The marketplace may essentially nullify the Paris climate agreement and render it completely pointless, but the Trump administration is still weighing their options.

On the other side are senior adviser Stephen Bannon and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, who on Friday said "we need to exit" the pact. And the Trump administration has already paused an Obama-era rule that aimed to limit the dumping of toxic metals produced by power plants into the nation's waterways. Now that the agreement has entered into force, it takes three years under its terms for a party to withdraw, followed by a one-year waiting period - a length roughly equal to Trump's first term in office.
At the White House Tuesday senior administration officials, including Pruitt, Tillerson, Kushner and Bannon, will be going over the pros and cons of staying in Paris.

Pruitt's comments increase the likelihood the US will pull out of the agreement, which requires governments to present national plans to reduce emissions to limit global temperature rise, as well as regularly report on their progress. Any diplomatic blowback from global allies would be short-lived, argues Chris Horner, a senior legal fellow with the Energy and Environment Legal Institute.
The agreement's text specifically allows a country to adjust its greenhouse gas targets if it is "enhancing its level of ambition", but not to reduce promises. That approach has won the endorsement of several major coal companies.
