President Donald Trump's announcement on Thursday to withdraw the United States from participating in the Paris climate accord is not sitting well with many Boulder-area scientists who say the move will likely have many impacts on the U.S. and the rest of the world — none of them good.
"This is a step backwards," said Mark Serreze, director of Boulder's National Snow and Ice Data Center.
"Our nation should be playing a leadership role in trying to combat climate change," he said. "The premise behind this decision that (the climate accord) is going to a job killer is just false. There is much more opportunity in green technology ... That's where the future lies."
