US Plans To 'Showcase Ways To Use Fossil Fuels' At Climate Conference

"The world's nations are gathering this week for the second time since President Trump took office to discuss how they will try to stop runaway climate change.

Despite a vow from Trump to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, the United States is again sending a delegation to the U.N. conference, which is being held in Poland.

But the Trump administration is not attending the two-week meeting without making its policy preferences known. The U.S. government is planning to hold a side event promoting fossil fuels as part of the solution to global warming.

The Trump administration plans to reinsert its voice at the climate conference in Katowice, in southern Poland's coal country."
