Elon Musk said that he'd have "no choice" but to leave the advisory councils of President Donald Trump should the administration decide to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement. In a series of tweets, the Tesla and SpaceX magnate said that he has done "all I can" to sway Trump against a decision that would isolate the United States from the global effort to combat climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. "Don't know which way Paris will go, but I've done all I can to advise directly to POTUS, through others in WH & via councils, that we remain," Musk tweeted Thursday. When asked what he'd do if Trump did indeed pull out of the agreement, Musk tweeted that he'd "have no choice but to depart councils in that case." Musk had previously stated that he was "cautiously optimistic" that the president would remain in the accord after speaking with Trump in early May.
