Does Trump Believe In Climate Change? White House Won't Say

Pence called Trump's decision "refreshing".

Trump said participation in the pact would undermine the USA economy, wipe out American jobs, weaken national sovereignty and put America at a disadvantage to other countries. He said the deal would have cost taxpayers billions of dollars.

"His job saving decision has driven the left insane, and hundreds are expected to march in Washington D.C.to protest President Trump's actions" said the email invitation by the Fairfax GOP. "The president has made America weaker and the world less safe". In November, 81 percent of voters who identified as white born-again or evangelical Christians voted for Trump, according to the Pew Research Center.

Meanwhile, scientists say Earth is likely to reach more unsafe levels of warming sooner as a result of the president's decision because America's pollution contributes so much to rising temperatures. "We will symbolically sign on and take actions necessary so that America meets its obligations under the Paris Accord, despite actions of this Administration". He's going as the leader of the sixth richest economy in the world - the state of California. USA growth would take a $2.5 trillion hit over 10 years with "factories and plants closing all over our country", Trump said at an April rally in Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, African nations are protesting Trump's decision. In Syria, a drought about a decade ago was one link in a long chain of events that helped result in the civil war there, said David Titley, a retired U.S. Navy rear admiral who started the Navy's Task Force on Climate Change in 2009.

The rally, named after Mr. Trump's remark about representing "citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris" when announcing he was ripping up the Obama-era agreement, was organized by the Republican Party of Fairfax Country, Virginia, in the D.C. suburbs.

"We're getting out", Mr Trump said at a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden under sunny skies on a warm June day, fulfilling a major election campaign pledge.

But don't bother asking at the White House. That means the US would remain in the agreement, at least formally, for another three-and-a-half years, ensuring the issue remains alive in the next presidential election. He is breaking from many of America's staunchest allies, who have expressed alarm about the decision.

Pay any attention to modern right-wing discourse - including op-ed articles by top Trump officials - and you find deep hostility to any notion that some problems require collective action beyond shooting people and blowing things up. He declared that the United States would continue its efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and appealed for partners to keep things "in perspective".

Those urging the Trump administration to keep the US promise on the Paris agreement have made opposite charges around the potential jobs impact.

The World Meteorological Organization estimated that USA withdrawal from the emissions-cutting accord could add 0.3 degrees Celsius to global temperatures by the end of the century in a worst-case scenario. "Withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement is bad for the environment, bad for the economy, and it puts our children's future at risk." wrote the billionaire CEO in a public post on Facebook. The immediate impact of Trump's move could be largely symbolic.

Mr Trump, tapping into the "America First" message he used when he was elected president a year ago, said the Paris accord would undermine the United States economy, cost USA jobs, weaken American national sovereignty and put the country at a permanent disadvantage to the other countries of the world.

Germany's DIHK Chambers of Commerce and VDMA engineering industry group warned that USA companies could gain short-term advantages by Trump's decision.

The meeting will end with a joint statement pledging full implementation of the Paris deal, committing China and the European Union to cutting back on fossil fuels, developing more green technology and helping raise $100 billion a year by 2020 to help poorer countries reduce their emissions.

Many politicians and other Americans jumped on Twitter after the announcement to cheer on Trump's "America first" emphasis on the economy.

Spicer gave short shrift to suggestions that Trump's decision will lift China as a global leader. It marked a direct stand against the Trump administration and a formal commitment to upholding the targets of the Paris agreement. The U.S.is the world's second-largest emitter of carbon, following only China. But significant new policies at the federal and state level are necessary to meet the US commitment under the Paris Agreement to lower its emissions to 26 percent to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025.
