06/01/2017: Pittsburgh or Paris?

After days of build-up, President Trump finally made it official: The U.S. is pulling out of the Paris climate agreement. "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris," Trump said.

Plus, with the U.S. taking a seat on the sidelines of the fight to control global warming, it's also sitting out big investment opportunities that China and the E.U. are promising to grab.
