With a busy week behind you and the weekend within reach, there’s no shame in taking things a bit easy on Friday afternoon. With this in mind, every Friday TriplePundit will give you a fun, easy read on a topic you care about. So, take a break from those endless email threads, and spend five minutes catching up on the latest trends in sustainability and business.

It's been a rough week in sustainability land (and an exciting one in 3p land!). In any case, we are ready for the weekend and we thought you might be too.

While U.S. President Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris accord is no doubt a huge blow to global cooperation, there is reason for optimism. Already collectives of businesses and city and state local governments are announcing plans to circumvent the U.S. federal government, and international actors are pushing back on President Trump's hopes to withdraw all together. We'll have more on the case for optimism on Monday.

In the meantime, some levity from Trevor Noah at the Daily Show:
