President Trump announced yesterday that he was pulling out of the Paris climate agreement.  Politico’s White House correspondent JOSH DAWSEY joins us to discuss the politics behind the decision and the internal struggles inside the Trump administration.  Then, we’ll look at the impact that the withdrawal will have on global efforts to combat climate change, and how businesses and industry are reacting to the news. Marty talks with MICHAEL OPPENHEIMER, professor of geosciences and international affairs at Princeton University and ERIC ORTS, professor of business ethics and legal studies at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
