Good morning, it's already Tuesday! I hope everyone had a happy Memorial Day weekend.

We have a busy week on hand: Trump might finally decide about the Paris climate deal (unless he doesn't), Energy secretary Rick Perry jets off to Asia, and my latest Harder Line column takes you behind the scenes with exclusive details about how the Trump administration and renewable industry are getting along better than you might expect.

One shameless plug before we dig into the news: the venerable Mike Allen's afternoon newsletter launches today. Click here to sign up and not miss a beat of our Smart Brevity!

OK, onward.

Thanks for making it until the end! Questions, comments, ideas? Reach me at
