Trump seeks input from U.S. energy companies on Paris climate pact
WASHINGTON,16 MARCH 2017 (REUTERS)—President Donald Trump’s administration has been contacting U.S. energy companies to ask them about their views on the UN global climate accord, according to two sources with knowledge of the effort, a sign Trump is reconsidering his 2016 campaign pledge to back out of the deal.
