Dr. Brian Salvatore, Professor of Chemistry and Physics at Shreveport's Louisiana State University, talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin Mccarty about President Trump;s announcement that the United States is pulling out of the Obama negotiated Paris Climate Treaty.

Critics of the agreement, including the President, say the deal was poorly negotiated and places an unfair financial and regulatory burden on the United States. Salvatore - and other backers of the global plan to fight climate change - say that Trump is short sighted and fails to see the dangers of unchecked CO2 emissions around the globe.
