State Department to issue formal notice of US withdrawal from Paris climate deal on Friday

Via Billy

The State Department is expected to issue a formal notice Friday that it will pull the U.S. from the Paris climate change deal, according to a report.

The U.S. delegation to the United Nations will then inform the international body of its decision. The written notice is the first official statement from the Trump administration about the climate agreement, Politico reported. But as the U.S. can't formally withdraw until 2020 and can't officially notify the U.N. about its plans until 2019, the Friday notice will be only symbolic.
