CEO and inventor Elon Musk has quit his role as advisor on Donald Trump's business advisory council. His decision was because the U.S. will pull out of the Paris Agreement. This is the climate deal signed by 195 countries to deal with greenhouse gas emissions. Musk tweeted: "Climate change is real. Leaving [the] Paris [Agreement] is not good for America or the world." Disney CEO Bob Iger will also quit the advisory council.

President Trump strongly supports the fossil fuel industry. He believes the Paris Agreement restricted business and growth. His supporters say leaving will help the coal industry to create jobs and make greater profits. World leaders criticized the USA. France's president said: "There is no plan B on climate, because there is no planet B." The world is moving towards cleaner energy. Leaving the Paris Agreement may limit the USA's global influence.
