Donald Trump is set to tear up the Paris Agreement on climate change, a former White House advisor has warned.

Myron Ebell, who headed up the President’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) transition team, said he could pull out of the global pact to cut emissions ‘by executive order tomorrow’.

During his election campaign, Trump pledged to boost oil, gas drilling and coal mining industries by slashing regulation.

He also promised to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement, but told the New York Times in November that he had an ‘open mind’ on the pact.

Ebell, who is director of global warming at think tank the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said: ‘The US will clearly change its course on climate policy. Trump has made it clear he will withdraw from the Paris Agreement.

‘He could do it by executive order tomorrow or he could do it as part of a larger package.’
