Four New England States join Paris climate goal alliance

Some state governors and city mayors were quick to claim the mantle of USA leadership in fighting climate change. "Aren't you and the president talking about protecting the horse and buggy just as cars come online?"

Trudeau and Trump exchanged words over the phone on Thursday night when the prime minister "expressed his disappointment with the president's decision", according to a news release from the Prime Minister's Office.

President Donald Trump said he represented "the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris", when he withdrew this week from the historic climate agreement signed in the French capital.

A White House official said the couple instead attended service at synagogue for the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. "Climate change is a reality", said Anthony Brancatelli, a Cleveland councillor who worked to draft the resolution.

The Paris deal, adopted in late 2015, represented the first time the world's governments agreed they all have a responsibility to limit pollution spewing from power generating stations, vehicles and other sources.

During Mr Trump's announcement to tell the world that the United States was withdrawing, he said that he was elected to represent "Pittsburgh, not Paris", leading the mayor of that Pennsylvania city to soon after say that Pittsburgh was still planning on going forward with reducing its carbon footprint.

"I think the whole question is an effort to get it off the point, and the issue of whether Paris is good for this country or not", Pruitt responded. American Bridge 21st Century, a progressive political action committee, called the potential withdrawal "catastrophic" in a statement earlier this week, saying it threatens 11 million jobs being supported by made-in-America exports.

"Do you believe climate change is a hoax still?" a reporter asked Trump on Wednesday.

Dr Sam Gardner, acting director of WWF Scotland, said that while Trump's announcement was "extremely disappointing", the rest of the world was making clear that the accord would endure. There is a scientific consensus that global warming is a man-made threat to Earth, its habitats and its people.

"Global warming is occurring, that human activity contributes to it in some manner".

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger said they would leave White House advisory councils over Trump's decision. "I don't even know what it means to deny the climate, but I would say there are climate exaggerators". While Trump and Pence have suggested the possibility of renegotiating the agreement, the leaders of Italy, Germany and France have said that won't happen. The significance of the Paris accord is that China and India took seats at the table because they recognized they must stop poisoning the air of their own cities.

"Well, that's up to them, right?" "However, it has never reached the United States' level of per capita Carbon dioxide emissions and has committed itself to a major change of orientation", Perthuis said.

Bloomberg was in Paris on Friday, announcing the formation of America's Pledge, a group that will submit to the United Nations a plan for how the United States will meet its Paris commitment, even without the federal government. From 1850 to 2010, India's Carbon dioxide emissions have been one tenth that of the United States and of the European countries. We have made tremendous progress. Rather, it's more likely that they seek to impose carbon-related tariffs on United States goods if these are deemed to be enjoying an unfair advantage because they are produced in an economy free of carbon restraints.
