    @dhcoaster: Interesting question on whether Congressional Approval is required for the Paris Agreement, so I thought I’d check it out but discovered it does not because the Paris Agreement reiterates obligations from the 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change that was approved by Congress. Actually to pull out of the Paris Agreement requires reversing Congressional Approval for the 1992 UN Agreement. “reiterates the obligations already contained in Article 4 of the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The United States became a party to the Framework Convention after the Senate gave its advice and consent by an overwhelming vote in 1992” https://www.nrdc.org/experts/david-doniger/paris-climate-agreement-explained-does-congress-need-sign
