Elon Musk To Cut Ties To Trump After Paris Decision
Technology billionaire Elon Musk said on Thursday that he is departing the President's various councils, after President Trump announced that the U.S. will leave the Paris Accord, the agreement among 143 countries to limit global temperature increases due to climate change to less than 2 degrees Celsius. Musk, who is behind such companies as SpaceX and Tesla Motors, had said earlier this week he would part ways with the President if the decision was made to leave the Paris Accord. Musk, in a tweet, said "Climate change is real," and that the decision "is not good for America or the world."
