Prof. Smirnov just submitted a paper to Nature Climate Change that describes the consequences of the U.S. withdrawal on international climate negotiations. His perspective is two-fold:
1) it is not in the national interests of the United States to exit the Agreement, and;
2) U.S. withdrawal would lead to significant additional costs for other countries, including especially the developing countries, which will likely lead to the complete collapse of international progress on climate change mitigation.
