U.S. isolated on climate at summit of world leadersBy Paul Carrel and Noah Barkin HAMBURG (Reuters) – Leaders from the world’s leading economies broke with U.S. President Donald Trump on climate policy at a G20 summit on Saturday, in a rare public admission of disagreement and blow to multilateral cooperation. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, keen to show off her skills as a mediator two months before a German election, achieved her primary goal at the meeting in Hamburg, convincing her fellow leaders to support a single communique with pledges on trade, finance, energy and Africa. Last month Trump announced he was pulling the United States out of a landmark international climate accord clinched two years ago in Paris.
