One farewell could unleash another. If Donald Trump, as anonymous sources would have it, pulls the US out of the global climate deal, Tesla's CEO Elon Musk will withdraw from his advisory role to the president. Since January, the entrepreneurial business magnate has sat on the president's Business Advisory Council, a role he has now threatened to quit via Twitter.

"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," writes the CEO on his twitter account.
