With Trump advisors split over whether to pull out of the Paris Agreement on climate change, the German chancellor may have an opening to lobby the us administration to maintain its support for the historic, 194-nation treaty. Merkel can mostly negotiate on this point from a position of strength-given Germany's record on promoting renewables-but one pressure point may be her lobbying of USA regulators to relax environmental standards for German diesel cars.
