John Kerry Blasts Trump Administration for Paris Move

"President Trump believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of that equation", Haley said, according to The Guardian.

Speaking on the CNN programme State of the Union, due to air on Sunday, Haley was seeking to define the president's thinking about climate change in the wake of his announcement that the U.S. will leave the Paris climate accord, joining Syria and Nicaragua as one of three non-signatories. Dylan Mathews over at Vox counted 115 times in which Trump tweeted some sort of skeptical claim about climate change from 2011 until October 2015.

He said Trump's reference "completely ignores the sacrifices that we made over 30 years.to clean our air and clean our water".

Nicaragua and war-torn Syria are the only countries not party to the Paris accord, the former seeing it as not ambitious enough.

Someone in the Trump administration has finally come forward to shed some light on President Donald Trump's take on climate change.

Haley told CNN that Trump will always have America's best interests at heart, including what he does in regard to protecting the environment.

Opponents of Trump's withdrawal-said to include his daughter Ivanka-had warned Washington's global leadership role was at stake, along with the environment.

"I'm looking at it very closely", Trump told the newspaper.

Apple debuts HomePod speaker to bring Siri into the living room
An Apple-designed speaker with high-end sound quality that fits perfectly into the Apple ecosystem is a familiar pitch. With its bulky size and high price point, the Hi-Fi flopped and was discontinued within 18 months of launching.

He did not cite older statistics from the Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis, which in 2013 estimated there already were 3.5 million "green" jobs in the American economy. Many American business leaders have voiced disappointment at Trump's decision to leave, latest among them Dow Chemical chairman and CEO Andrew Liveris, who heads the president's manufacturing council.

"If you don't buy that - and I don't - then what we have is really just an expensive way of making the tree-huggers feel good about themselves", he wrote.

There are risks for Trump.

"We have nothing to be apologetic about as a country with respect to what we've done in reducing our Carbon dioxide footprint", he continued, adding that the USA still plans to remain engaged. It's worth noting that 75 percent of the voters in the city of Pittsburgh, which Trump highlighted in his Rose Garden speech, cast ballots of Hillary Clinton, Trump's opponent.

Amid furious worldwide criticism of Trump's decision Thursday to quit the Paris climate agreement, White House spokesmen had refused on Friday to say whether the president even believed the climate was changing.

But Bill Peduto, the mayor of Pittsburgh, said he was "personally offended" by Trump's remarks. "I mean, that's what he believes".

Last week, Trump followed a similar campaign script on his maiden trip through Europe to meet with leaders of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, an organization he called obsolete during his campaign. If one of them followed the USA withdrawal, it would be unlikely the Paris accord would lead to large-scale reduction of emissions.
